Yh, he's referred to as 'Mwalimu Nyerere', just like "Mahatma" is a title in Mahatma Gandhi

So, for Julius Nyerere, the word 'Mwalimu' is like a title not to be translated?

This is a bad English sentence. We would say: Mwalimu Nyerere was well known.

The tips at the start of this lesson teach about the "eka" or "ika" suffix, but many (not all) of the exercises also include an extra "-na" suffix. What does that mean?
