    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ 8. BUSIA: "THE CROWD THAT HAS GATHERED HERE IS SO LARGE, SO VAST, THAT IT'S NO POINT IN TRYING TO MAKE A SPEECH, BUT HIS A CLEAR DEMONSTRATION THAT THE PROGRESS PARTY HAS ALREADY WON THE SUPPORT ... (CROWD CHEERS) ... THE VICTORY IS ALREADY OURS. ALL I WOULD ASK YOU TO DO, EVERYONE, IS TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ENROL IN THE PROGRESS PARTY AND THAT YOU GET YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARDS. FOR THE REST ... FOR THE REST, WE ASK YOU TO TRUST US, TO GO FORWARD AS A NATION, TO GO FORWARDS AS A PEOPLE TO ACCOMPLISH THE GOAL OF THE REVOLUTION. WHICH IS THAT THIS COUNTRY SHOULD HAVE PEACE, STABILITY, THROUGH PROGRESS IN UNITY, THROUGH PROGRESS IN LOVE, THROUGH PROGRESS IN STANDARD OF LIVING, THROUGH PROGRESS IN EXTENDING OUR PUBLIC LIFE, THROUGH LIBERTY FOR ALL.
