This is a trivial (funny) comment, but i have an old Baba Malaika dictionary that translates "mbona" to "why the hell?"

Isn't mbona why rather than how?

They seem to prefer "how come" as a translation for mbona, but "why" should be fine as well.

Mbona doesn't translate as "how?" but as "how come?" (= why?).
