How To Say Hello In 10 African Languages




With 54 countries, the continent of Africa celebrates a number of languages which are characterised by   different accents. I've compiled a list of greetings in singular form; the next time you meet Africans from the following countries you can take it from a simple 'Hello' in their indigenous language ;-)


Jambo in Kiswahili  (Kenya & Tanzania)

Muraho in Kinyarwanda (Rwanda)

Sawubona in Zulu      (South Africa)

Oli otya in Luganda   (Uganda)

Dumela in Tswana     (Botswana)

Ẹ n lẹ in Yoruba        (Nigeria)

Mbóte in Lingala       (Congo)

Mhoro in Shona       (Zimbabwe)

Mulishani in Bemba  (Zambia)

Kudual in Dinka        (Sudan)
