how on earth did Zulu end up with a Roman alphabet?

Um...where do the Zulus live? Who occupied their country? And which nationality actually thought it was worth while writing down their language, and what alphabet do they use?

Years ago on a visit to South Africa, I was taken to a restaurant for lunch where the waitress was simply the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. My companion admitted that he had brought me there simply to admire this sight. He told her I was from England, which got an immediate positive reaction. Then he said "And she's got five grade 1s at O level from an Anglican mission school."
