On behalf of the Head of State, the Minister congratulated the people of Kéran for the perfect organization of this cultural encounter.

"We can not walk without a compass in hand. This experience underlines the truth that is the enhancement of our past and our cultural heritage. From this point of view, the prefecture of Kéran is a symbol," said Oulégoh Kéyéwa .

"Your festival traces and relive significant moments in the rich history of the Kéran in close communion with their cultures," he said.

Throughout the years, Togo organizes many cultural events which are all symbols of the variety and richness of the populations living in the country.
