Is this equal to "subiri"? Never heard this word before but I hear "subiri" being used all the time.

Both "kungoja" and "kusubiri" means to wait; however, I tend to use "kusubiri" more, and I use "kusubiria" (to wait for) even more.

-ngoja is the Bantu-based verb -subiri is the Arabic loan verb choose whichever you deem necessary or nicer ;)
