Original text on this topic:
existence white rhino. That a rhino of this group [R. simus] existed in Central Africa had been suspected before. Dr. Gregory in `The Great Rift valley' mentions having seen in Leikipia, but failed to shoot, three specimens which he believed to be R. simus. Some years earlier Count Teleki shot a `White rhinoceros' in the same district. Maybe however these belonged to R. bicornis.
