Is this a typo? Shouldn't it be sasa ni saa tisa asubuhi or is it actually right?
Read the notes. They start counting from 6 am on. So 9am = 3 am (Swahili time)
Like Jewish time in the new testament.
Never mind, saa ni Kiswahili ni sita kasoro
Saa ni Kiwahili ni sita *saa kasoro
Yeah, it's tricky to get your head around it at first.
One easy way I've found to read it is look at the opposite number on the clock. So 6am is saa 12 za asubuhi in Swahili. 7 is 1 in swahili. 8 is 2.
Thanks for the helpful tip!
I understand the tatu bit but the rest NO
Sasa = now
ni = is
saa = hours/time
tatu = 3
asubuhi = morning
So it's basically saying that it's now 3 o'clock (swahili time) in the morning as opposed to 'saa tatu jioni' which would be 3 o'clock in the evening/night (9pm)
