"Aka Benzi" on the road. The pig is an animal with low status. People who sell pork in the villages  advertise it not as Pig but as Aka benzi- Aka is a diminutive prefix- Like  - y  in english. So we  are saying this is a little Mercedes Benz and in doing so elevating the status by playfully renaming it."- Norbert Ntitsimburwa
