    Background: The President of The Gambia Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara, accompanied by Lady Chilel Jawara began their official visit to Britain on Monday (24 June) with a reception hosted by Gambian High Commissioner in London, Mr. B.O. Semega-Janneh.

    Sir Dawda and Lady Chilel had arrived in Britain four days earlier and spent four days privately in Edinburgh, Scotland.

    During his stay, Sir Dawda will attend a luncheon in his honour given by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace. The President and Lady Jawara will also be guests of honour at a dinner given by Prime Minister Harold Wilson at number ten, Downing Street.

    The Gambia has strong links with Britain and was Britain's first colony in Africa dating back to 1580. In 1965 Sir Dawda led his country to independence as its first Prime Minister. In 1970, on attainment of a Republic status, he became the first President of the Republic of Gambia.
