As is the case every year, the Beninese Community in Sweden has once again gathered to revel as part of Benin’s Independence Day.
Indeed, on Saturday, August 5, 2017, the Benin-Sweden Group, an organization gathering Benin nationals living in Sweden, celebrated pompously the 57th anniversary of the independence of our country. The celebration was marked by speeches, didactic games for children and a big reception. An evening of dances with Beninese and African music put an end to the celebration.
The celebration was very good, especially thanks to the leadership of the members of the Executive Committee of the Benin-Sweden Group headed by Mrs. Rokibath Adéoti ALASSANE, and all the other Beninese from Sweden who made the trip despite the distance which separates them from the venue of the celebration.
The Embassy of Benin in Copenhagen was represented by Mrs. Bénéditte M’PO SENA ACHIGAN, First Secretary at the Embassy, with the presence of Mr. Willy HSIEH, Honorary Consul of Benin in Stockholm, his wife and daughter.
