Why not wali "na" kuku?

I second this question!

In addition, it is tiring to remember when they demand "rice" for wali and when "cooked rice". Feels like spending as much energy on memorizing vocabulary as on remembering where they want definite/indefinite articles or none, where which expression for the seasons (heavy rainfall season, heavy rains season, heavy rain season, heavy rain, heavy rains, season of heavy rainfall, etc.) is considered correct...

I'm fed up. As Hagen says, we waste time memorizing Duolingo's whims. The only reason I'm still here is that I am indeed learning Swahili, just wasting a lot of time doing so.

Why not "rice FOR the chicken"?

This should be "wali na kuku", if the translation is supposed to be "rice with chiken."

Colloquially, often it's just "Wali kuku," "Chipsi kuku," etc.

Would this be the case where the chicken is cooked inside the rice pilau style?

Rice with chicken should work, unless it is a picture...

Honestly, what are you supposed to say if you want to feed your chickens rice? Not "wali kwa kuku"?
