Nkosi Sikelel’i Afrika

Lord, bless Africa

May her horn rise up;

Hear thou our prayers

And bless us

Descend, O Spirit

Descend, O Holy Spirit

Bless our chiefs;

May they remember their Creator,

Fear Him and revere Him,

That he may bless them

.... more suprisingly, Nkosi Sikelel’i Afrika is also the National anthem of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania and Namibia, each of which sing translated versions.

.... When South Africa play Zambia at football on Tuesday, the anthem will, presumably, need to be played only once.

just some feed back on Nkosi Sikelel'I Afrika is mainly true I have to mention that it's not the national anthem of Namibia, even though the song is the national anthem of many southern african states. The national anthem of Namibia is 'Namibia, Land of the Brave' and you can hear it on (see link) but be warned it's a real wankey anthem even by African standards.
