Not fair! You must have your PC set to either the UK or US regions. I think I set mine to South Africa back when I got it *shrugs*
Windows warns that changing regions can remove your access to various things, but honestly I don't think I've purchased anything of any consequence on the Windows Store so it should be ok.

Wonder if she will understand our African folk and their English or coloured people English?
Well, I saw a demo video where she perfectly understood a native Indian guy's strong accent (he even commented that he was surprised by that), so I think they've definitely got a solid voice-recognition engine built into Cortana.
Google Now and Siri are severely limited in SA by a lack of local info, but that doesn't stop them from offering what they can.Cortana localisation is not a language issue - the language part is easy and is largely done.
The real problem is the localised info and access to localised data and services.
