Description SEPTEMBER 1953 Ð INTERVIEW WITH SOBHUZA 11 Ð NEG 266. SAED:SOCIAL:PERSONALITIES:DRUM SEPTEMBER 1953 Ð Interview with Sobhuza II Ð Paramount Chief Sobhuza II, of Swaziland, passed through Johannesburg recently on his return from the Coronation in England. He was accompanied by his wife Lamakolwa, his daughter Princess Gcinapi and Counsellors. In the city he was given a warm reception by people of all nationalities. ÒI met the Queen of Tonga a very important figure and a charming lady. We arrived at Southampton at the same time, and I was glad to know she was born the same year as I was 1899. The coronation celebrations had a spirit all of their own Ð warm friendships and inter-racial jubilation which I have never known before. .(Photograph by Drum Photographer ©Baileys Archives) NEG 266 FRAME 1
