    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 15: KENYATTA: "I have complete faith in the energies and talents of our people. Everything that the Government and people together have achieved in these seven short years, has justified the search for dignity and self-determination. Today we can see all the structures and enterprises of a developing modern State, reflecting not only a rise in the living standards of our people, but also a respectable place in the world."
