2020 Commonwealth Summit In Kigali Postponed

Rwanda, which was to host the meeting, has extended its lockdown until early May.

This year’s Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), scheduled to be held in Rwanda, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 10,000 delegates – including the UK Prime Minister and Prince of Wales – were expected to attend the 26th summit in the capital Kigali in two months’ time.

A new date has not been announced.

It was going to be the first summit held in a country with no colonial links to the UK. Rwanda, which was formerly a Belgian colony, joined the Commonwealth in 2009.
