Basotho (pronounced: bah-sow-THO or: beh-soo-thoh-tah) people are mostly concentrated in the eastern part of South Africa, in the Transkei, Gauteng, Free State and Eastern Cape provinces, and with a few scattered groups in Zambia and Namibia. They belong to Khoza, a group of southern African ethnic groups whose ancestors came from the Zambezi River and spread across Africa to settle in the Middle East. The Khoza then migrated to Southern Africa, including the Transkei, where they have been settling since long ago. The Basotho have their own culture and dialect, so the people are divided into different groups like Khoza, Bantu, Ngoni, Zulus and Makhonjwa. The name Basotho comes from the Basuto people of the Zambezi. Most of the population is of mixed ethnicity, which means that most of the people are either white or black, but there are some isolated people, mainly in the Eastern Cape who still uses traditional names like Bantu and Ngoni.
