SeSA: South African Sesotho / Sesotho sa Afrika BorwaEdit
Variant of the Sesotho language spoken mainly in South Africa. In the Sesotho Wiktionary the South African (SeSA) as well as the Lesotho (SeL) versions of words in Sesotho are indicated. Take note that the language is generally regarded as the same language yet the orthographies differ and they act as separate entities in two different countries. Furthermore the two 'variants' have their own dictionaries and even language boards.
