The few sources I found showing the history of the anthem seemed to suggest that the work was originally written in both languages, rather than translated. It's not conclusive but good enough for me to assume this position unless evidence turns up to the contrary.
With regard to the copyright of the original, the first copyright discussion shows that the copyright, as a government-commissioned work, expired in Kenya 25 years after publication, and would not therefore have been restored by URAA. The second discussion was based on {{PD-EdictGov}} being incorrect (which is true), so I have used a more accurate license tag. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 02:57, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
