Vultures, Kenya

Taken August 1985 either Nairobi or northward towards Samburu, I suspect White-headed for the left hand one due to white on wings but right hand one seems to have a thicker beak? Any help gratefully received for these poor slides!

Bird to the right seems to be Lappet-faced, the first does look like White-headed.
