Herero is a Bantu language with around 133,000 speakers, who are known as Ovaherero, in parts of Namibia and Bostwana. It's closely related to Himba and Tjimba.
Since the 1960s, efforts have been made to standardise the spelling of Herero and other Bantu languages.

Korutenga Ndjambi wa memene eyuru nehi. Nehi kara ri nomuhapo, nu ra ri tjo. Nu kwa ri onḓorera mourekoto, nOmbepo yaNdjambi ya tengerere kombanda yomeva.
In the beginning God created heaven and earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep water. The spirit of God was hovering over the water.
