The word for "hand/hands" and "arm/arms" is the same in Swahili, "mkono/mikono", and there is a word for "palm/palms" ("kiganja/viganja") but I think this is less used in common conversations.
mkono (m-mi class, plural mikono)
3) A unit of length about half a yard long.
kiganja (ki-vi class, plural viganja)
1) palm (inner, concave part of hand)

Maybe you don't need to add 'of the hand' but it shouldn't be counted wrong
Some questions have vidole as fingers and other need vidole vya mkono. Are they both correct?
