LESSON #61: Learn Swahili vocabulary with pictures #11

Tanzania Jakaya Kikwete

Words to learn:

  • Rais (marais)– president
  • Chama (vyama)– party
  • Hotuba– speech
  • Umati (wa watu)– crowd (of people)
  • Punga mkono– wave (at someone either in greeting or to get their attention)

As by the photo above, that’s Tanzania’s esteemed president (or ‘presidaa‘ as others call him). Judging by the colour of his get’-up, he was probably going to make a campaign speech for his party, but before that he seems to have made the rounds whilst appreciating the crowd, as indicated by his enthusiatic waving.
