- ON THIS DAY in 1960, THE AFRICAN COUNTRY MADAGASCAR GOT HER INDEPENDENCE
Madagascar is located in the southeast coast of Africa.
Probably due to the fact it occupies a strategic location off the southeast coast of Africa, the island historically became the target of British and French imperial ambitions. This resulted in French colonization at the end of the nineteenth century.
But on 26th of June 1960, Madagascar gained full independence from French colonization.
Madagascar’s Independence Day is traditionally celebrated with a lot of fun on the day. The people generally celebrate with good food, drinking and dancing. And the day is a public holiday for the Madagascar people.
Enjoy the day our dear brothers in Madagascar.
