Yep, most words in swahili are gender neutral. It can make it a little hard to follow a story, but much easier to learn
Is 'yeye' gender neutral?
Yes. According to Wilson's textbook Simplified Swahili: 'yeye' means he, him, she, and her (although never "it," unless referring to animals).
are mkenya and wakenya different in what?
Mkenya is singular and Wakenya is the plural form.
Why is "Mkenya" other than "mholanzi" spelled with a capital "M"?
good question i am not sure either
Well in Swahili referring to someone based of his home nation you have to start in capital. It is a way of showing 'respect'. e.g Mkenya=Kenyan, Mholanzi=Dutch.
