Description Marco Lambertz 2007-01-03 13:30:24 UTC
Version:           0.4.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

At least in the German translation, the Capital of South Africa is shown to be Cape Town (Kapstadt). This is wrong. The capital of South Africa is Pretoria.
Comment 1 Albert Astals Cid 2007-01-03 21:12:09 UTC
Well, according to wikipedia, Cape Town is where the National Parliament is while Pretoria has most of the administration buildings, so i think none is a correct chose, would you accept having
"Pretoria, Bloemfontein and Cape Town"
as capital string?
Comment 2 Marco Lambertz 2007-01-04 11:56:58 UTC
The CIA World Factbook says:
name: Pretoria (administrative capital)
note: Cape Town (legislative capital); Bloemfontein (judicial capital)
So, yes, I agree.
