The use of African indigenous languages has, for a very long time, been proscribed within the academy. The South African Constitution articulates the imperative to develop these languages in order to treat all official languages equally and to achieve parity of esteem between English and the African indigenous languages. This is critical in order to reverse the legacy of colonialism and apartheid which, wrongly, viewed African indigenous languages as shallow and inadequate. The transition to a democratic society would therefore not be complete without the revival of African heritage, language and identity.
