Showing a front cover of a 'constitution' booklet dated 10th December 1963 is meaningless. Independence was granted on the 12th.
And Ill repeat this to you again because birthers tend to shut out information they dont like. Kenya became independent in 1963 but only
became a republic in 1964, December. This is what you continously ignore in your arguments. You base the assumption that Kenya
became a republic the minute it declare independence, thats a lie.
You can dislike media matters but the link to the news article states clearly that Kenyan officially became a republic in December of 64'. Such
fringe websites as the free republic, along with you fellas, continously go on about the term "republic" being used prior to 64' in various Kenyan
articles. While that may be true the position of the government was not officially a republic until 64'.
The Kenyan republic stamps along with
other official government seals were not released until following the announcement in December of 64'.
HC Deb 14 December 1964 vol 704 c36 36
§ Mr. Speaker Bill to make provision as to the operation of the law in relation to Kenya as a Republic within the Commonwealth, presented by Mr.

You continously state that the term "republic" is found in the constitution. Ofcourse its found in the constitution of Kenyan from 63, its an
ammendment added from the official declaration of the republic in december of 64'.
Now, if you would like to completely ignore history to suit your personal conclusions its all fine and dandy, you can join the rest of em. By all
means if you feel this is untrue get me official documentation of a birth certificate prior to December 64' to back it up.
If you want to see a real Kenyan short form birth certificate, go to WND themselves:
If you think that wording was only added in 1964 then prove it.
Why should I prove anything further? The official status of the government and the nation only became a republic in December of 64', its plain
fact that you willfully over look.
You are yet to prove that the nation gained its status as a republic automatically the minute it became
independent. You are yet to provide official government documentation that shows the term republic prior to December of 1964.
forming a provisional government, and Kenya celebrated its independence on December 12, 1963, with Kenyatta as prime minister. A year later Kenya
became a one-party republic when the main opposition party went into voluntary liquidation. At the same time, Kenyatta became the first president
of Kenya under a new constitutional amendment. In this office he headed a strong central government, and successive constitutional amendments
increased his authority, giving him, for instance, the power to arrest political opponents and detain them without trial if he considered them
dangerous to public order
Kenyatta was the first president for the republic of Kenya from December 12th 1964 on wards. Every biography will mention this fact.
Heres some more proof for you. The official "Kenyan Republic stamps" was not released until December 12th of 1964 upon the declaration of the
republic at the same time. But somehow this "short form kenyan birth certificate" managed to get an official republic seal 10 months prior to the
official declaration, it makes no sense sorry.
Your still sitting here making excuses for what is obviously a forged document. You got yourself fooled, your not helping yourself any further by
extending the excuses.
