    Interesting facts about South Africa

    I found this quite interesting and thought that maybe you have come across some facts about SA that you would like to share. Share and discuss them here.

    68% of African language speakers would prefer their children to be educated in English (FutureFact 2007)

    More than 12,000 'Black Diamond' families (South Africa’s new black middle class) - or 50,000 people - are moving from the townships into the suburbs of South Africa's metro areas every month, according to the UCT Unilever Institute's Black Diamonds 2007 survey.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    The majority of SA based active participants on TFSA are white.
    The majority of UK based active participants on TFSA are black.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
