In Tanzania, urban- and rural-based respondents painted an interesting picture of a country where a local language (KiSwahili) is designated as the national language. Respondents in Dar es Salaam and Mwanza, and several rural areas outside of these localities, showed the potential for a non-dominant language to take precedence in online spaces. Yet, the core infrastructure of technology for digital spaces remains entrenched in English, often making it essential for online use and interaction.
