As everyone probably knows by now, Mzansi is a democratic country like a rainbow nation inclusive of all races. Mandela said all the citizens of this country should live in unity and have equal opportunities to tackle this thing called life and get the most out of it.
Its public knowledge that South Africa has over 11 official languages and with that said, any individual living in any parts of the country is allowed to use any of the 11 language, as long as they don't use vulgar words or offend anyone.
Any person living in South Africa can use any of the 11 languages during when they are addressing the crowds with speeches or normal conversation. Some people love the South African languages so but much to the point where they even use them in naming their businesses.
Now without any further ado, let's checkout the 3 businesses with Zulu names but aren't owned by Zulus. See the list below:
The company was founded in 2010 by Alma Gericke and over the years, the company has grown into a formidable MLM brand in South Africa.
As every small business owner knows by now, Ikhokha's technology invention revolutionized their industry by a huge mile. This tech start up was founded by two white brothers, Ramsay Daly and Matt Putman, back in 2014.
Believe it or not, this taxi is actually owned by a Chinese company called BAW South Africa, the company launched this taxi in order to compete with Toyota, who have monopolized the taxi industry in South africa for over two decades now.
YES I know that you're probably surprised at this whole thing, but that's the reality of the situation and don't you dare blame this companies for using African names, because it's their democratic right.
What do y'all think about the names?? Let's talk in the comments section
