    Background: At the African Stadium this afternoon, thousands of Africans gathered to say 'Goodbye' to Jomo Kenyatta, before he leaves tonight for the conference in London which starts on Wednesday next. Tribal dancers from many Kenya tribes gathered at the stadium to show Kenyatta that they appreciated his efforts on their behalf, and he, Kenyatta, showed his pleasure by going down from the stand to mix in with the dancers.

    I shot this item in sound as there were many good effects to be obtained.
