Well, according to the ‘The African Passport’ on Twitter, these are the most googled African countries in other Africa countries.

This isn’t really a surprise, as there’s always so much happening in South Africa, quite frankly, there is never a dull moment in the rainbow nation.

From political scandals to loadshedding and celebrating sporting heroes, or just on how ordinary South African’s manage to find humour through their difficulties on social media platforms, South Africa is of interest to many.

In South Africa, according to the map, the African country that South African’s are searching the most is their neighbour, Zimbabwe.

There is a large number of Zimbabweans living in South Africa, which could mean that Zimbabweans are keeping tabs of developments in their country.

In East Africa, Kenya seems to be the most Googled country in that region, with South Africa also making an impression on East Africans.

Nigeria’s internet users also seem to be interested in what’s happening in South Africa, with the majority of searches in Nigeria focused on South Africa.

In Northern Africa, Algerians are very much interested in what’s happening in Morocco, while Egypt dominates the majority of internet views in Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan and Chad.
