Why Swahili?

Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 

Estimates of the total number of Swahili speakers vary widely, from 50 million to over 100 million. Swahili serves as a national language of three nations: Tanzania, Kenya, and the DRC. Swahili is also one of the working languages of the African Union and officially recognized as a lingua franca of the East African Community.
