I was talking to my sister this weekend. She is abroad in South Africa and taking Afrikaans classes in school and has some friends that speak it. She told me she learned the funniest thing and had to tell me. She said Simba ment about the equilevent of ****. She said she even asked her teacher. I've tried googling it and translation pages to obviously no avail. Now, supposidly, Simba means lion in Swahili. So any linguists out there? Is she pulling my leg?

No, kak = ****

I can't post the link up (as it would be removed) but if you type "Afrikaans english translation" into Google it's the 3rd result down

hey ppl, i come from South Africa and im currently living in germany. I can speak afrikaans fluently, seeing that it's my mother language. I also speak german, it's quite funny to see how similar afrikaans is to german. If there's any questions feel free to ask, i would love to translate!!
Fok voort en geniet dit
