My answer is exactly right and yet every time I'm told its incorrect. I cant get past this point. Must be a bug in the app.

It's not natural English. Who says "female Tanzanian"? It sounds like a nature documentary and you don't regard Tanzanian women as humans.

Also, I'm not clear if mwanamke is this specific, but a" woman" is not simply a female person but an adult female human - not a child.

Plus, to be correct "female Tanzanian" would be "mtanzania wa kike" and I agree with AGreatUserName that it is very unnatural.

Seriously? You're wrong if you don't include the word "a" before Tanzanian woman?
