At this the author has a burst of temper blaming 'political agitation' - this is still a few years before independence - for this decision, I don't know quite what she is implying, possibly no more than that the black people are being uppity and complaining about her doing as she pleases playing at being Dr Dolittle or Tarzan, the desire not to have a growing population of lions as your neighbours getting into your stockades and eating your goats seems a perfectly understandable one to me, neither of the Adamsons come out of this looking partially well to my mind.
