    Why do none of the native southern african languages have their own alphabet?

    There is a writing system https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ditema_tsa_Dinoko Recent, but it has one specifically for the sounds that can't be captured by Latin Alphabet. Without the colours it looks very much like the writings system in Stargate SG1 later seasons

    Push for driver’s licence changes in South Africa – including linking licences to IDs
