Prince William speaking Swahili

According to People, 20 people were honored with unique ‘Diana Awards’ that recognized the contributions and impacts they’re making to their communities.

And the prince – who’s a frequent visitor to Africa – started speaking Swahili with one man from Tanzania, Africa.

Tessy Ojo, Chief executive of the Diana Award charity, told People that the man was stunned.

“One of the young people is from Tanzania, and he started talking to him in Swahili – and this young boy was gobsmacked! It wasn’t just one sentence. This was not something he had just read out of a book. It was truly special.”

Last year, Prince William visited Tanzania for the second time in 18 years. The Duke of Cambridge met Tanzanian President John Magufuli and also exchanged Swahili greetings with him.

Swahili is the third highest-paying second language in South Africa, according to Adzuna

The search engine for job advertisements, Adzuna recently analysed the 10 best-paying second languages in South Africa of 2019 and found that Swahili is the third highest-paying second language in SA.

It was said that salaries on offer for Swahili linguists increased by more than 46% compared to the average salary of R200 000 offered in 2016.

Big growth in salary offerings for African languages

Zulu saw the biggest growth in salary offerings year-on-year. Vacancies for this language don’t compare to the rise in average salaries, with the demand of 2019 being 59% lower than the demand recorded three years ago (421 Zulu jobs on offer in 2016. With South Africa opening up more and more trade doors into the greater African continent, it appears as though businesses are preparing for a future that relies more on the incorporation of African clients.
