Language and Culture
The Majority of people in Bulawayo speak Ndebele, which is related to Zulu, spoken in South Africa. Other common languages include English, Khalanga, Sotho and Shona. The Ndebele people originated from Kwazulu Natal. They came to Zimbabwe when King Mzilikazi, fled from King Shaka of the Zulus. Today the Ndebele monarchy is not as active as it used to be, but the Ndebele people still hold strong to their values and culture. Very few are still involved in traditional ancestral worship as Christianity is now seeming to be the new form of worship.
