It keeps the infinitive if it is only one sylable

I thought with kwenda you can keep the infinitive, ie: unakwenda

It is used that way in some circumstances, though I kind of got a little confused on that bit myself, so I can't tell you what they are. They'll turn up somewhere else in the course.

In the meantime, though, use -enda, especially if the next bit looks like another verb.

You can't but the verbs that do that are Kula(to eat) and Kuja(to come)

It also is dialectal variation; there are a few cases in which it must be -enda; to my knowledge that also never is wrong (language development), but in certain regions (and originally that was the - only? - correct form) they use -kwenda within conjugation.
