When i do a search on nominatim for Cape Town South Africa, the top result comes up with city name kapské mesto as the city name, which i assume is foreign language for Cape Town, however this should display in english..?

Also the city in the details is kapské mesto which should also be cape town.

Where exactly are you searching? nominatim.openstreetmap.org, openstreetmap.org or?

The language of the result displayed is an UI question, the result itself (as in the object found) is the same in any case. Given that the UI language is determined by either your profile or your browser preferences, it would be interesting to know what you have set there. The result that you are getting now is in Czech btw.
