chorus from: Okech Okelo by Jushua Mzee a Luo artist recorded in the early 50’s by Hugh Tracey- I’ll send you a copy if you drop me a line

text from police radio:
fristly indistinguishable radio noise then it reveals - "Go Straight ..the one at the back now - go straight"
more chopped up radio sound
"You step into empty space ......Extra Protection" from english radio advert
then at the end
"go straight where you are now - the one at at the back go straight ..past that power line -just go straight
now follow that road - towards the Nyala - and where that motorcar is standing"
