Anyone have a good rule for when to use kusubiri vs. kungoja? Is it a Kenya/Tanzania issue?

I don't know if this is accurate but I personally think of "kusubiri" as being a bit more polite if I'm asking another person to wait.

"To wait" as far as i am aware is "kusubiri" in my opinion the correct translation should be "ninasubiri" i do not know the word "ngoja"
