What's the difference between "peke" and "pekee"?

I'm not entirely sure, so take this with a grain of salt, but I think peke is the base word and pekee is kind of a short version of peke yake in the same way that baada(y)e is a short form of baada yake.

peke yangu = on my own pekee = alone (on his/her/its own)

peke ya... (by my-/you-/him-....self) against pekee "only/alone" For example "God sent his only son." "Mungu akamtoa Mwanawe pekee." (bible)

my dictionary corrects form pekee to - peke as proper one.

It looks like you can use both words in the same meaning: alone, only, isolation
