  • Description


    STUDENTS ARRIVE AT CONFERENCE HALL AT UNIVERSITY OF EAST AFRICA, NAIROBI; VARIOUS SHOTS OF DELEGATIONS; MR. MURUMBI ADDRESSES CONFERENCE (SOF).



    TRANSCRIPT: MR. MURUMBI: "THE ABILITY TO EXCHANGED KNOWLEDGE, IDEAS, OPINIONS IS AMONG THE GREATEST GIFTS OF MANKIND AND THAT IS - OR SHOULD BE - THE PURPOSE OF CONFERENCES. THERE ARE NO GREATER EXPONENTS OF THE FREE INTERCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE THAN UNIVERSITIES. BECAUSE OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH WE WORK, GOVERNMENTS OFTEN HAVE TO SAFEGUARD THEIR KNOWLEDGE FROM OUTSIDE DISCLOSURE. BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE DO NOT APPRECIATE THE VALUE OF FREEDOM OR INTERCOURSE ALONG THE BROAD HIGHWAYS OF KNOWLEDGE WHICH ARE REPRESENTED IN THE UNIVERSITY KNOWLEDGE IN ANY FIELD IS NOT, THANK GOD, THE MONOPOLY OF ANY ONE NATION, PEOPLE OR INDIVIDUAL. THE ADVANCEMENT OF ITS FRONTIERS IS A KIND OF INTERNATIONAL GROUP DYNAMIC OF WHICH CONFERENCES ARE A VALUABLE COMPONENT."
