Mzungu is in town

While I was in Tanzania, on my vacation, allot of people were calling me Mzungu because I was speaking English more then Swahili. It bugged me at first, as Mzungu means white skin person from Europe and I am an Arab, not even close to be a Mzungu.

Now anyone who talks Western language and not Swahili is known as Mzungu in Africa.
