Zimbabwe / Shona

Shona, first language of Zimbabwe, spoken by 7.5 million people. 2nd language is Ndebele, with around 1.5 million. Shona is widely used and understood in this country of 10.6 million people; yet it is English, the language of the same opressors that ruled old Rhodesia, the only official. The renaming from Rodhesia to Zimbabwe brought other changes, as the change of the capital name from Salisbury to Harare, a Shona name. Most places in maps have Shona names, but some have different spellings in Shona proper.
