Togo is a state in West Africa, located on the Gulf of Guinea. Until the First World War, the area of ​​Togo was a German, then a French colony. The country was shaped for almost 40 years by the autocratic ruling President Gnassingbé Eyadéma. After his death, his son Faure Gnassingbé was appointed the new president in disregard of the constitution. International pressure and unrest in the country led to the return to constitutional conditions. Gnassingbé won the following elections, although the opposition and the European Union accuse him of massive electoral fraud. There are still several thousand refugees abroad.

Togo: Lomé

The capital of Togo is Lomé. The city has 760,000 inhabitants. Lomé was founded in the 18th century by the Ewe people, who mainly live in Togo and Ghana. At first Lomé was just a village, but from 1882 it developed into a trading center. In 1897 the German colonial administration moved its headquarters from Togoville to Lomé. In 1904 a jetty was opened, which brought shipping traffic to bloom. In the 1960s, a deep-water port was built at this point. Togo’s first railway line was also built from Lomé. This is how Lomé became the trading center of Togo and it is still today.
