    A VAST CROWD WATCHED THE STATE INSTALLATION OF JOMO KENYATTA FOR HIS SECOND FIVE-YEAR TERM AS KENYA'S PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IN NAIROBI ON THURSDAY. THE CEREMONY WAS FOLLOWED BY A LARGE SCALE PARADE OF KENYAN ARMED FORCES.

    THE INSTALLATION CEREMONY, PERFORMED BY KENYA'S CHIEF JUSTICE KITILI MWENDWA, FOLLOWS LAST MONTH'S GENERAL ELECTIONS. BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND HIS NEWLY FORMED CABINET TOOK THE OATH OF ALLEGIANCE.

    AFTER THE CEREMONY, PRESIDENT KENYATTA TOLD THE CROWD IN THE CAPITAL'S NEW UHURU PARK THAT, ALTHOUGH KENYA WAS POLITICALLY INDEPENDENT, ITS WEALTH WAS STILL IN THE HANDS OF FOREIGNERS.

    HE URGED KENYANS TO FIGHT FOR ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE AS THEY HAD FOUGHT FOR POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE. AT THE SAME TIME, HE APPEALED TO THE PEOPLE TO RESPECT FOREIGN VISITORS TO THE COUNTRY AND ASSURED FOREIGN INVESTORS THAT THEIR INTERESTS WERE IN SAFE HANDS.

    THE COUNTRY NOW AIMED AT SOCIAL JUSTICE AND TH PROVISION OF ECONOMIC AMENITIES TO REPLACE THE HARDSHIP ANDLACK OF OPPORTUNITY WHICH HAD AFFLICTED THE COUNTRY FOR SO MANY YEARS. THE PRESIDENT ADDED THAT IMPROVED EDUCATION WAS ESSENTIAL TO THE COUNTRY'S FUTURE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

    EARLIER, UNITS FROM ALL THE COUNTRY'S ARMED FORCES HAD MARCHED PAST IN HONOUR OF THE PRESIDENT. AT THE END OF THE PARADE, THERE WAS A FLY PAST BY FORMATIONS OF AIRCRAFT FROM THE KENYAN AIR FORCE.
