Photos Profiles Profiles can be themed; you can specify the colors for most parts of your profile, including text, background and links Putting contact info in your profile will get your account deleted email address, phone number, full name, etc. Now I’ve only met one girl, and was able to become her friend and email her a couple of times, and maybe she will look more into me or not, but the point is, is that this is the most legitimate site out there that I can at least find. When going on this site as with any date site you have to understand that patients is a virtue, which with this site you can actually feel comfortable with that statement because it isn’t a time waister like all of the other sites that scam the hell out of you and have multiple issues with people hacking profiles and forging pictures etc. Now regarding the comment section that doesn’t let you delete what ever you posted – my advice would be to just share your interests, and save your thoughts and opinions for email conversation or phone conversation. What I like to do is just share youtube videos of music I enjoy. Im a person who is passionate for music so thats what i like to post in the comment section.
In , an estimated women died during pregnancy or the first 42 days after delivery due to causes related to pregnancy and birth. And despite a decline in child marriage, it is still a very real threat with no legal protection against it — The Customary Marriages Act does not specify a minimum age of marriage — only that girls aged require permission from a parent or guardian, and that the marriage of a girl below 16 requires the consent of a responsible minister — making it impossible to monitor and prevent child marriage.

Zimbabwe – History Photo by: Patricia Hofmeester Evidence of Stone Age cultures dating back , years has been found, and it is thought that the San people, now living mostly in the Kalahari Desert, are the descendants of Zimbabwe’s original inhabitants. The remains of ironworking cultures that date back to AD have been discovered. Little is known of the early ironworkers, but it is believed that they were farmers, herdsmen, and hunters who lived in small groups.
They put pressure on the San by gradually taking over the land. With the arrival of the Bantu-speaking Shona from the north between the 10th and 11th centuries AD , the San were driven out or killed, and the early ironworkers were incorporated into the invading groups. The Shona gradually developed gold and ivory trade with the coast, and by the mid th century had established a strong empire, with its capital at the ancient city of Zimbabwe.
This empire, known as Munhumutapa, split by the end of the century, the southern part becoming the Urozwi Empire, which flourished for two centuries. By the time the British began arriving in the mid th century, the Shona people had long been subjected to slave raids. The once-powerful Urozwi Empire had been destroyed in the s by the Ndebele, who, under Mzilikaze, had fled from the Zulus in South Africa.
David Livingstone, a Scottish missionary and explorer, was chiefly responsible for opening the whole region to European penetration.

Towers of Great Zimbabwe Proto-Shona-speaking societies first emerged in the middle Limpopo valley in the 9th century before moving on to the Zimbabwean highlands. The Zimbabwean plateau eventually became the centre of subsequent Shona states, beginning around the 10th century. Around the early 10th century, trade developed with Arab merchants on the Indian Ocean coast, helping to develop the Kingdom of Mapungubwe in the 11th century.
This was the precursor to the more impressive Shona civilisations that would dominate the region during the 13th to 15th centuries, evidenced by ruins at Great Zimbabwe , near Masvingo , and other smaller sites. The main archaeological site uses a unique dry stone architecture. The Kingdom of Mapungubwe was the first in a series of sophisticated trade states developed in Zimbabwe by the time of the first European explorers from Portugal.

Over the past few hundred years, the coastal area has been conquered and colonized several times—by Portuguese in the sixteenth century, by Middle Eastern Arabs who ran a slave trade in the nineteenth century, and by the British in the twentieth century. Thus, Swahili people are accustomed to living with strangers in their midst, and they have frequently acted as middlemen in trade relations. In addition, they have incorporated many people and practices into their vibrant social world.
Swahili are all Muslims. They became Muslim through the influence of people coming from the north and also from across the Indian Ocean. They have forged extensive economic, political, and social ties with Middle Eastern Muslims. During the colonial period and since independence in the early s, Swahili people have been a minority Muslim population in the secular states of Kenya and Tanzania. The lush coastal plain provides a fertile environment for growing coconut palms, fruit trees, spices, and mangrove in swamp areas.
Over the past several decades, thousands have migrated to the Middle East, Europe, and North America largely for economic reasons. The Swahili population is about half a million. For most Kenyans and Tanzanians, KiSwahili is learned as a second language. Swahili people speak KiSwahili as their “mother tongue,” and it reflects their mixed origins and complex history.
The language includes many words borrowed from Arabic and other languages , yet its grammar and syntax place it in the Bantu language family, which has roots on the African continent.

Lol for her sake I actually hope her sons bring home coloured men hahahaha Crown Well put Clint, my sentiment exactly. So many of you crawled out of the wood work, coloured cockroaches, supporting your white bosses in the western cape. Every day we see you, we are disgusted at your strange coloured slave mentality, the whites who you support are impoverishing your coloured people… fool.. We dont live in that world anymore Thembi Ndlovu …says the stupid black guy from Western cape….
We cant be taking over the whole country… Western cape is for them give them that at least!! Glom Gazingo This guy, this guy right here is indicative of why we will always have racial tension. Spewing mindless drivel, designed to incense and cause disharmony. It is a sad fact that people with your kind of opinions are always the most vocal, always the ones who start with the racial slurs, when in fact you are just as guilty of the purported behaviour of the entire coloured community.
Iago you want to talk about a slave mentality? The bright future that Madiba started us towards has become tarnished by constant scandal and ineffectual leadership of the ruling party. But still the black people vote for them, after many many broken promises. Iago Xsanga Your perception of economics limits your understanding of global inferences. Certainly all capitalist governments are corrupt, nothing more than your apartheid government, who not only stole our land, but mass murdered and lynched to protect racism.
