Population and Religion
South Africa has a population of 57.8 million (2018). The South Africans are referred to as the “rainbow nation” because the South African people are a mixture of different languages, cultures and religions.
With 47 residents / km 2, South Africa is sparsely populated ( Kenya: 90 Einw./km 2; Ethiopia: 109 Einw./km 2). The population is mainly distributed in the west of the country: In the province of Gauteng with the capital Pretoria (Tshwane) and the mining and financial center Johannesburg, for example, almost 25% of the total population live on just 1.5% of the country’s area.
While whites live almost exclusively in cities, a large number of blacks still live in rural areas. “Townships” are located on the outskirts of the big cities. The non-white population lives in these urban slums. Several hundred thousand people live in simple huts such as in the township of Soweto in Johannesburg.
81% of the total population belong to the Bantu groups. The largest groups are the Zulu and Xhosa. About every ninth South African is colored. They are descendants of connections between European settlers and the original indigenous population, the Khoikhoin. They also include the San, the last members of the oldest people in southern Africa, as well as the Cape Malay, descendants of formerly abducted slaves from East India. The whites, mostly of Dutch and British origin, have a share of 8%. More than half of them speak Afrikaans, the rest speak English. At around 3%, Asians are the smallest group of the population. They are predominantly the descendants of Indian contract workers. Check watchtutorials to see South Africa the Rainbow Nation.
There are eleven official and lingua franca. The most important of these is English, which connects all population groups.
86% of the population are Christians, most of whom belong to Protestant communities, the Anglican Church and independent churches. The religious minorities include Muslims, Hindus, followers of traditional African religions, and Buddhists.
The political system of racist apartheid divided the South Africans from 1950 not only into blacks and whites, but also into coloreds (“colored people”) and Asians. The assignment decided on the political rights, the place of residence and the schooling of the person concerned. What was euphemistically described as the “program of separate development” was the massive oppression of the black majority by the white minority. In 1994 apartheid was lifted. The gap between the main colors black and white remained. Almost a third of blacks are unemployed, and the same number have no access to clean water. According to law, companies in democratic South Africa are obliged to employ more black workers in order to redress the inequality of treatment during the apartheid regime.
Robbery and violent crime are particularly widespread in large cities. HIV and AIDS are serious problems. About 20% of the adult population is infected with the HI virus. Around a thousand people die of AIDS every day. Over half of the people live in poverty.
