  • Description

    Nairobi is now all prepared for the arrival of the Queen Mother tomorrow afternoon. The streets and avenues are very gay with flags and bunting flying in the brilliant sunshine, and all the buildings have put on a special effort to welcome H.M..
    The scenes shot in this film are of the various streets. The opening shot is of the entrance to the city where a huge roundabout has been decorated with the sign 'Nairobi welcomes You Majesty', and masses of tropical flowers.

    Although there has been some talk of an African boycott of the visit I have asked numerous Africans if they intend to boycott, the general reply is that they have no intentions of doing this.
