I reported the "correct" answer "Tanzania we've english" as being unnatural just now -- 4 Jan 2018

In English we would say "In" Tanzania we have rhinos, not "Tanzania"

why not Tanzania has rhinos? Poor English

I can imagine it can be odd if literally translated to english

When saying Tanzania, it is actually mean In Tanzania

e.g. shuleni tulifanya fujo - we misbehaved in school Jana tuliende mahakamani - yesterday we went to court

Technically i think its like "in this space/time of Tanzania/yesterday we did so and so"
