  • Description

    Nairobi Ismailis prepare for, the coronation of H.H.The Agha Khan.

    Sir Eboo Pirbhi, Leader of the Ismaili community in East Africa, discusses the programme and arrangements for the coronation with Mr..M. Curtis, personal aide to the Agha Khan, and Mr Sudrudin, Chief Press Officer to the Agha Khan.

    Decorations and festive arches are going up in all directions - this arch is being built at the gates of the coronation grounds in Nairobi.

    Amid all this activity senior police officers check on security with leading Ismailis.

    Receiving a coat of paint is the dais on which will stand the coronation throne.

    Concurrent with all the hustle for the ceremonies is the building of a new hospital close by the coronation grounds, for the benefit of the Ismaili community.

    Next to the hospital is a school. Notice how shy these little girls are; it is considered unlucky to be photographed.

    Soon all will be ready for the great day, when the new leader of the Israeli sect will be confirmed in his office.
