  • Rwanda is hosting the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), which brings together leaders and representatives from the group’s 54 members, most of which are former British colonies.
  • Ahead of CHOGM, 21 rights groups in an open letter called on the heads of state attending the meeting to pressure Rwanda’s government to respect human rights.
  • CHOGM has been partly overshadowed by Rwanda’s alleged support of M23 rebels.
