“A tongue-and-cheek explanation to why Cape Town is known as the Mother City: “due to the highly expressive vocabulary of the local dialect (in which the words “your mother” features regularly) and also that it takes 9 months to get things done.” However it is said that word metropolis is derived from the Greek derivation of meter or metros meaning mother and polis meaning city, the nickname of “Mother City” was born.”
