Hi....I am in South Africa.....I am trying to get a shapefile to plot in the correct place......need someone out there to shed some light down here at the base of the dark continent.

1)   The .prj file is GCS Hartebeestehoek 94...which is a local geographic system but if I pull the file into the map it gives LO co-ordinates(XY's). It plots on the correct meridian/Longitude but the equal but opposite in the north.
2)   When I change the projection to Hartebeestehoek gives me Lat Long geographic CS also in the Latitude is positive.

Can some one please help!!
