Iyo meat and fruits.

In English ( not American) we would use goat's meat or goat, but not goat meat

Yes, I'd say "I don't eat goat" (ditto chicken, snake, kangaroo).

UPDATE:
machieng is quite right. It turns out "goat meat", "goat's meat" and "goat" are all correct English to describe the flesh of the animal, so all three should be accepted as translations of "nyama ya mbuzi".

Doesn't accept "fruits" for matunda.

Why not accept "They eat goat meet"?

You spelt meat wrong. It's "meat" not "meet"

So is the fruit referring to bananas? Because I have noticed that in kenya you often get a banana to your meal.

I thought pineapple. Pineapple contains an enzyme that tenderises meat. Goat meat can be tough so should be stewed with pineapple.
