    Background: PRESIDENT NKRUMAH OF GHANA FLEW INTO LONDON TODAY (MONDAY) TO ATTEND THE COMMONWEALTH PRIME MINISTERS' CONFERENCE WHICH OPENS ON WEDNESDAY.

    THERE WAS A WARM WELCOME FOR THE GHANAIAN PRESIDENT WHO IS LEADING A GROUP OF SEVEN AFRICAN NATIONS THAT WILL PRESS THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER FOR BRITISH ACTION TO ENSURE AN AFRICAN MAJORITY GOVERNMENT IN SOUTHERN RHODESIA.

    GHANA HAS CALLED ON BRITAIN TO EXERCISE "AN INESCAPABLE RESPONSIBILITY" TO DIRECT THE SELF-GOVERNING COLONY TOWARDS INDEPENDENT GOVERNMENT ELECTED BY UNIVERSAL FRANCHISE.

    THE HARDENING AFRICAN ATTITUDE SUGGESTS AN EARLY ATTEMPT TO DISCUSS SOUTHERN RHODESIA AT THE COMMONWEALTH CONFERENCE, ALTHOUGH IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT BRITAIN DOES NOT WANT THE ISSUE TO DOMINATE THE TALKS.
