    that is what you call proving the ability? This is another ****! Waswahili huwa tunadhani mila zetu za kuitana wajina na somo zinaapply hata kwa wazungu. Ndio maaana tunaita babazetu wakubwa Big and small fathers. It does not apply friends let africans especilly swahili be defined by their swahili culture
