Of Bantu origin.

twende (plural, first person)
nendeni! (plural, second person)
-endeni! (plural, second person) ‡
usiende! (singular) ‡
tusiende! (plural, first person)
msiende! (plural, second person) ‡
(‡Imperatives that take an object use the second form)
Irregular imperative forms:
Nenda! -- Go! (pl. Nendeni!)
From Wiktionary: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/enda
Why not Enda? I would understand naenda nyumbano as "I'm going home" but am confused why the n is here in the command
Enda is one of the words that is special when using it as a command and turns to Nenda when commanding someone to 'Go'. Other words like Kuja turn to Njoo, Kuleta turns to lete when used as a command. There is all the information in the notes for this lesson, please refer to that as I am still learning aswell.
