    PRESIDENT JOMO KENYATTA AND PRESIDENT KENNETH KAUNDA OF ZAMBIA YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) REVIEWED A MARCH-PAST OF THE KENYAN ARMED FORCES IN NAIROBI TO MARK MADARAKA DAY - THE CELEBRATION OF THE FIRST FIVE YEARS OF INTERNAL SELF-GOVERNMENT.

    ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE POLICE, NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE AND PRISON SERVICE DETACHMENTS MARCHED PAST THEIR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, THE PRESIDENT, WHO SAID IN SPEECH AFTERWARDS:"I TELL YOU TODAY THAT I AM PROUD OF THE PROGRESS AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF THIS NATION."
    PRESIDENT KENYATTA SAID FUTURE GENERATIONS MIGHT LOOK BACK AND BE INSPIRED BY THE PROGRESS WHICH HAS BEEN MADE IN KENYA IN FIVE YEARS.

    HE QUOTED AS EXAMPLES THE STRENGTH OF THE KENYA ARMY - NOW 99 PER CLIENT MANNED BY KENYANS; THE MILLION-ACRE (400,000 HECTARES) RESETTLEMENT SCHEME; THE TOURIST INDUSTRY MORE THAN DOUBLED SINCE 1963 AND TREMENDOUS PROGRESS IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION.

    THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE OF KENYA HAD LAID AND BUILT ON THE VITAL FOUNDATIONS OF PROGRESS AS A MODERN STATE AND HAD GIVEN TRUE MEANING TO THE VICTORY OF MADARAKA. HE ALSO SAID THAT KENYA HAD ACHIEVED PROGRESS WHICH SPRANG FROM POLITICAL STABILITY DESPITE THE EFFORTS OF SUBVERSIVE MEN.

    PRESIDENT KENYATTA'S SPEECH WAS RELAYED BY LIVE BROADCAST TO ZAMBIA, SINCE PRESIDENT KAUNDA ATTENDED THE PARADE AS PART OF HIS SEVEN-DAY STATE VISIT TO KENYA. THE VISITING PRESIDENT WAS GIVEN A ROUSING RECEPTION BY THOUSAND OF PEOPLE OF ALL RACES WHO THRONGED THE MOTORCADE ROUTE AND THE MAIN STREET ALONG WHICH THE PARADE PASSED.
