    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 7: KENYATTA: "DURING THESE PAST YEARS, THE PEOPLE HAVE TRIUMPHED OVER MANY DIFFERENT CHALLENGES. THE GREATEST OF THESE HAS BEEN THE FALSE AND WICKED THREATS THAT CAN BE MANUFACTURED OUT OF TRIBALISM. SOME OBSERVERS HAVE TENDED TO THINK THAT OUR REPUBLIC WAS HEADED FOR CONFLICT OR DISASTER. I WAS SUSTAINED, HOWEVER, BY FAITH IN THE WISDOM OF KENYA'S PEOPLE, WHICH HAS BEEN UNWAVERING FOR FIFTY YEARS. AND ALL THIS WAS ACCOMPLISHED OPENLY, WITH MUTUAL CONFIDENCE BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE. THROUGHOUT THIS TIME, ACCEPTING ALL THE RISKS IN SUPPORT OF VITAL PRINCIPLE, WE HAVE ALLOWED FULLEST FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND DEBATE"
