    I would say it's more correct to say this as 'chagua kula sasa ama baadaye'

    I'd agree ... and if you're going to use the ama ... ama construction, then Chagua kula ama sasa ama baadaye.

    Why is ama - au incorrect

    That's just not how it works in swahili in guessing, it wasn't moulded to work like English

    It is accepted now as a correct translation (August 2019)

    so Au can't be used when saying Or?

    Yes, it can. Example from Kamusi ya Kiswahili Sanifu: Chukua hiki au kile -- Take this or that.
