I was tempted to say Rwanda hoping it might be healing, but I'm unsure how they are doing these days if it would be possible.
Julie darlin', I don't think Rwanda is part of the Commonwealth, Mozambique applied and joined some years back, but Rwanda was never part of our colonial past.

Re: The Commonwealth

Trump should head it as a diplomatic gesture....He would enjoy touring some of those countries he described so eloquently.

Re: The Commonwealth

Which Commonwealth? The head of the Commonwealth of Australia is defined in the constitution:

2. Governor-General

A Governor-General appointed by the Queen shall be Her Majesty's representative in the Commonwealth, and shall have and may exercise in the Commonwealth during the Queen's pleasure, but subject to this Constitution, such powers and functions of the Queen as Her Majesty may be pleased to assign to him.
