COME, I’LL SHOW YOU THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN

TOGO

Togo (officially the Togolese Republic) shares borders with Ghana, Benin, and Burkina Faso, with a short, 52 km stretch of Atlantic coast in the south. Lomé is the capital of Togo. The country’s official language is French, but its approximately eight million inhabitants also speak Ewé, Kabyé, Mina and many other languages.
>/br>
Togo is among the poorest countries in the world. Approximately one third of the population cannot read or write. The socio-political situation remains fraught, despite ongoing democratisation efforts.
>/br>
Journalists in Togo often work in a climate of intimidation and violence. There is a great diversity of opinions, but many journalists avoid topics like corruption, the role of the military, and questions of national security. On the 2020 World Press Freedom Index published by Reporters without Borders, Togo ranked 71st out of 180 countries.
