The 12th of December, 1963, was the day of the declaration of independence (Uhuru), and just one year later a new country was born: the Republic of Kenya, Jamhuri ya Kenya, presided by Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. He based his mandate, until his death in 1978, in something that would become a motto for the people of Kenya: Harambee, meaning "pulling all together at once".

The democratic transition that has occurred since Kenya's last national day has set an example for others and opened great opportunities both for Kenyans and for Kenya's relationships with its friends abroad,"
