Hopefully this will result in sustained action on the Wikipedias in the ten other SA languages. I have made a very small number of contributions to the Afrikaans WP which has only a handfull of regular contributors. (I should try to be more active there but en.WP takes up all my time.) I know the Xhosa WP has been under threat of closure at least twice in recent years, I have no idea about the status of WPs in the rest of the languages. Is there a more apropriate space (on Wikimedia ZA?) where we can discuss this as I'm sure many/most of the regulars here will not be able to attend the event?

Worldwide, when people have sufficient internet access, eventually the number of languages/dialects represented by having their own Wikipedia increases. Hopefully this will be true in Southern Africa too. While South Africa has 11 official languages, most of which are also spoken in neighbouring countries, there are many more languages and dialects. The most blatant gap in terms of Wikipedia is the KhoeSan language group. Its largest member, Nama, has about 300 000 speakers between S.A., Namibia and Botswana.
