Local Wikipedias of Cape Town/ South Africa

Andy Mabbett-2
I'm writing some slides for a presentation at Wikimania. I'd like to
use some local examples - which Wikipedias exist (and are most
active), in the local languages of Cape Town/ South Africa?

Re: Local Wikipedias of Cape Town/ South Africa

Afrikaans and Xhosa are the most relevant local languages to Capetown.

Afrikaans is not huge, but fairly active.

Xhosa has a tiny number of contributors, but they are dedicated, and I think that at least one will be at the Wikimania.

Other languages of South Africa in which there is a Wikipedia

There are many other languages in South Africa, and there is a Wikipedia in most of them, although activity is unfortunately very low even though they are spoken by quite a lot of people. See:
