Rwanda's Kagame meets Britain's Prince Charles

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is visiting Rwanda on Thursday (June 23) to help people shed their "condescending attitudes" to Rwanda after criticism of the government's plans to deport asylum seekers to the country.

Johnson will meet with Prince Charles in Kigali on Friday (June 24) on the sidelines of a meeting of Commonwealth leaders, after media reports the heir to the throne privately described the government's plans as "appalling".

Earlier this year, Britain struck a 120 million pound ($147 million) partnership with Rwanda to deport asylum seekers to the East African country but the first such flight was halted last week by the European Court of Human Rights.
