  • Description

    MR. TOM MBOYA, KENYAN MINISTER FOR JUSTICE WHO HAS JUST RETURNED FROM AUSTRALIAN, SPOKE AT A RALLY AT KERICHO ON MONDAY. IN THIS SPEECH AT THIS RALLY, MR. MBOYA CRITICISED KENYA'S ASIAN COMMUNITY.

    BEFORE MR. MBOYA AND HIS PARTY ARRIVED, THERE WAS A DISPLAY OF TRIBAL DANCES FROM THE LUO WOMEN. AND KIKUYU DANCERS ALSO SHOWED THEIR TRIBAL DANCE.

    THEN MR. MBOYA AND HIS PARTY ARRIVED WATCHED BY A BIG ENTHUSIASTIC. THE MINISTER WAS INTRODUCED TO THE WELCOMING PARTY BEFORE GOING TO THE STADIUM TO DELIVER A SPEECH.

    ADDRESSING THE CROWD, MR. MBOYA SAID GOVERNMENT MINISTER AND OTHER LEADER WOULD BO LONGER ACCEPT INVITATIONS TO TEA IN INDIAN DUKAS AFTER ADDRESSING PUBLIC MEETING, HE ACCUSED THE ASIANS OF BEING ARROGANT, AND SAID THEY ONLY PAID LIP-SERVICE TO AFRICAN LEADERS WHILE THEY ACTUALLY DESPISED AND DISREGARDED THE ORDINARY AFRICAN ON THE STREET.

    THE ASIANS, MR. MBOYA CONTINUED, MUST SHOW WHETHER THEY WERE WITH THE AFRICANS IN THE TASK OF NATION-BUILDING. BY MERELY INVITING AFRICAN LEADERS TO TEAS, HE WENT ON, WAS NO INDICATION THAT THEY SUPPORTED AFRICAN ASPIRATIONS. HE HOPED THAT MORE ASIANS WOULD NOW BE ATTENDING PUBLIC RALLIES AND HEAR WHAT AFRICAN LEADERS HAD TO SAY. THE MEETING EXPRESSED SUPPORT AND CONFIDENCE IN THE GOVERNMENT PLANS FOR A ONE-PARTY SYSTEM AND A REPUBLICAN STATUS FOR KENYA.

    MR. MBOYA WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE, PAMELA, MR. WAIRA KAMAU, MEMBER FOR GITHUNGURI, AND MR. KIPROTICH, MEMBER FOR KERICHO.
