    Rwanda’s flag to fly at Marlborough House

    By Edmund Kagire
March 8, will be the special day when Rwanda’s national flag is set to
be raised at Marlborough House-London, the Commonwealth secretariat, to
mark Rwanda’s entry into the group.  President Paul Kagame and
Patrick Manning, the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago who is the
current chair-in-office of the Commonwealth will preside over the
ceremony to be observed by Kamalesh Sharma, the Commonwealth Secretary
General. After the flag-raising ceremony, Prime Minister Manning
and President Kagame will address Commonwealth High Commissioners and
invited guests in the grounds of Marlborough House, to mark Rwanda’s
first Commonwealth Day.  The two leaders will also hold a press
conference before Sharma conducts a traditional ‘familiarisation tour’
to President Kagame regarding the Commonwealth, its traditions and
formal practices. Rwanda was admitted to the Commonwealth in
November 2009, during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in
Trinidad and Tobago.    Manning, Kagame and Sharma will later
attend a multi-faith Commonwealth Day Observance at Westminster Abbey,
in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen. During his recent
visit to Rwanda to officially deliver a message of admission to
President Kagame, Sharma noted that Rwanda’s entry into the group will
be beneficial on both ends, with Rwanda benefiting from the group while
at the same time taking some benefits to other member states. The
Commonwealth is comprised of mainly former British colonies and Rwanda
became the 54th member and second country to join the group without any
colonial connections to the British, Mozambique was the first. Ends
