Settlers were made to accept increased Asian and African political representation, although the government provided assurances that it would protect their vital interests. The Asian electorate was to be split along communal lines, much to the displeasure of the Hindus. Africans obtained better representation, but were obliged to accept procedures involving indirect election which protected the "traditional" political institutions that colonial rule had brought into being. Kenyatta's Kenya African National Union rejected these concessions and advised that it would not recognize the African representatives so elected.

The origins of those who were classified as "Arabs" have been traced to migrations from Oman and Persia in the eighth and ninth centuries which resulted in Arab settlements being established from Mogadishu to Kilwa along the East African coast. Most early migrants were Sunni Muslims. Since independence in 1963 at which time the Arab population risked being designated as foreigners, they have lost their separate status and now regard themselves as Swahilis (lit. "men of the coast"). In colonial society, the Afro-Arabs comprised the converted African peoples of paternal Arab descent including the former slaves of Arab traders and planters.

The reports of other committees established to examine implications for secondary and higher education gave little encouragement to the government's plans for implementation in 1984. Their mandate, however, was not to determine whether or when the 8 + 4 + 4 should be implemented, but how it should be done. Doubts about the reform were expressed less and less obliquely in articles on education appearing in the English language press in late 1983 and early 1984. In February 1984, the Minister of Education and the President reiterated the government's determination to proceed with the 8 + 4 + 4 scheme, and cautioned that "there should be no more debate about it" (Weekly Review, 1984,9).
