In \cite{DK}, the present authors and S. Nik\v cevi\'c constructed the 2-parameter family of invariant Riemannian metrics on the homogeneous manifolds $M=[{\rm SO}(5)\times{\rm SO}(2)]/{\rm U}(2)$ and $M=[{\rm SO}(4,1)\times{\rm SO}(2)]/{\rm U}(2)$. They proved that, for the open dense subset of this family, the corresponding Riemannian manifolds are g.o. manifolds which are not naturally reductive. Now we are going to investigate the remaining metrics (in the compact case).
