Togo celebrates 61st independence day

(Togo First) - Today, Togo celebrates its 61st  independence anniversary. To commemorate the day the country’s first President Sylvanus Olympio declared its independence, a large military parade, preceded by a ceremony of taking up arms, took place this morning at the Place des Fêtes of the Presidency. 

The parade was held in the presence of President Gnassingbe, members of the government, and officials. It should however be noted that official festivities started a few days ago, with religious services, and the traditional revival of the flame of independence carried out on April 26 by the Head of State. 

Earlier yesterday also, President Gnassingbe inaugurated the Kekeli Efficient Power thermal plant, as part of the festivities. Located in the port area, this infrastructure is expected to increase Togo’s power production capacity by 50%.
