Why does the South African driver's license have Portuguese writing on it?

As you can almost read in this picture
, just below the words "Driver's license" are the words "Carta de conduçao". What is the history of this? The only thing I could think of was that this had something to do with the border war/occupation of Namibia and Angola, but I was unable to find any information about it.
