South Africa is one of the richest parts of Africa! Many believers are located here making it a busy stop for Santa even though it has 51 million people, it has about as many believers as Canada with 34 million. Main cities have more believers and further South means more believers.
Some people in South Africa fear Santa. People have told legends that if you are bad. Santa comes and takes you in his bag and makes you an elf to work for him for the rest of his/her life. Most Natives believe that, while non-natives do not. It sometimes spreads to the cities. The origin of this legend came from Chad, South Africa.
