  • Description

    "THE FIRST CONFERENCE OF ITS KIND IN THE COMMONWEALTH" ... THAT'S HOW KENYA'S PRIME MINISTER DESCRIBED THE SPEAKERS AND CLERKS CONFERENCE IN PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS, NAIROBI, YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY), IN HIS OPENING SPEECH.

    AMONG COUNTRIES REPRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE ARE KENYA, BRITAIN, UGANDA, NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN RHODESIA AND MALAWI, PLUS THE EAST AFRICAN CENTRAL LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.

    PRIME MINISTER KENYATTA REMINDED DELEGATES THAT ALTHOUGH PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURES IN THE COMMONWEALTH HAVE BEEN MODELLED ON THOSE OF THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT, AT THE SAME TIME THE INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES ARE LOOKING FOR PROCEDURES WHICH REFLECT THEIR OWN IMAGES AND PERSONALITIES. HE WENT ON: "IN OUR COUNTRIES WE MUST MAINTAIN HIGH RESPECT AND DIGNITY WITHOUT WHICH OUR PARLIAMENTS WILL BE UNABLE TO FULFUL EFFICIENTLY THEIR FUNCTIONS AS LAW MAKING BODIES."
    (THE EAST AFRICAN CENTRAL LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY, IS THE COMMON SERVICES ORGANISATION ESTABLISHED TO CO-ORDINATE ROADS, RAILWAYS, WATER SUPPLY AND THE FIGHT AGAINST THE TSETSE FLY IN KENYA, UGANGA AND TANGANYIKA.)
