"Mpira wa pete"
Basketball is mpira/mchezo wa kikapu/vikapu.
Basketball and netball are similar. The most noticeable differences are that there's no backboard behind the ring and when you're in possession of the ball, you cannot move, so no running along dribbling the ball - you have to throw it somewhere before you move. In countries where it's popular, it's primarily regarded as a women's sport.
