Bantu Peoples Of South Africa
Africans from South Africa were at times officially called "Bantu " by the apartheid regime . The term Bantu is derived from the word for "people" common to many of the Bantu languages . Oxford Dictionary of South African English describes its use in a racial context as "obsolescent and offensive" because of its strong association with white minority rule and the apartheid system. However, "Bantu" is used without pejorative connotations in other parts of Africa.

Telephone Numbers In South Africa
South Africa has switched to a closed numbering system . Within South Africa, from 16 January 2007 it became mandatory to dial the full 10 digit telephone number including the zero in the three-digit area code even for local calls (for example: 061). Area codes within the system are generally organised geographically. All telephone numbers are 9 digits long (but always prefixed by 0 for calls within South Africa), except for certain Telkom special services. When dialed from another country, the '0' is omitted and replaced with the appropriate international access code and the country code 27. Numbers were initially allocated when South Africa had four provinces, meaning that ranges are now split across the current nine provinces. South-West Africa (including Walvis Bay ) was integrated into the South African numbering plan
