"Jambo" is a problem, like "tatizo", "tata" or "shida". For that reason, the common greeting is a discussion of the lack of problems, and all the prefixes are negative. "mimi sijambo" literally means "I am without problems". The answers given are culturally accurate, but lazy, and if you teach conjugation this way you will confuse your students, who are looking at this as a positive conjugation, "ni/u/a", when it is actually a negative conjugation "si/hu/ha".
