Swahil has become a second languager spoken by tens of millions in three African Great Lakes countries (Tanzania, Kenya, and the DRC), where it is an official or national language. It is the only African language in the African Union. In 2016, Swahili was made compulsory in all Kenyan Schools.
Swahili and closely related languages are spoken by relatively small numbers of people in Burundi, Comoros, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, Zambia and Rwanda. The language was still understood in the southern ports of the Red Sea and along the coasts of southern Arabia and the Persian Gulf in the 20th century.
Some 80 percent of approximately 49 million Tanzanians speak Swahili in addition to their first languages. The five eastern provinces of the DRC are Swahili-speaking. Nearly half the 66 million Congolese reportedly speak it. Swahili speakers may number 120 to 150 million in total.
