Shona-speaking Population Grows In South Africa’s Limpopo Province.

South Africa’s statistician General Risenga Maluleke reported that a new language, Shona, has emerged in Limpopo province, previously undocumented in the 2011 census.

Shona is now spoken over 28,000 households, contributing to the province’s population of 6.6 million.

Maluleke attributed that the population growth is due to Zimbabwean migrants, who have made Limpopo their first destination.

Hence this lead to the discovery of the Shona language in the recent cencus.
