The next #CHOGM will be in Rwanda ���� in 2020, followed by Samoa ���� in 2022.
I dudn’t know Rwanda was a member of the Commonwealth. It was originally a German colony that passed to Belgian control after World War I, the country’s main language of public administration and education is French and Rwanda is a member of La Francophonie. However, according to Wilipedia, English also has official status in Rwanda.

I think Rwanda and Mozambique are the only two commonwealth countries which were never British Colonies.
