Commonwealth countries set to meet in Rwanda and what to expect

The heads of government from Commonwealth countries will meet in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda on Friday and Saturday. The government heads are meeting to tackle challenges including climate change and food shortages caused by the war in Ukraine.
