OK, so we finally know why South Africans love to braai so much... it's because we invented it.
Scientists have uncovered what they believe is earliest evidence of a camp fire, in a cave in South Africa, dating back about a million years. Prior to the discovery, there wasn't much consensus on when our ancestors mastered the art of fire, so until further evidence is uncovered, I'm claiming the invention of braaing for South Africa.
