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"

The error reporting does not allow here to report a bug in the English translation. So in this case we cannot report it.

It did for me when I mistranslated it -- maybe you only get the option for wrong answers? Jan 2018

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

No, just having a comma after "In Tanzania," in the English translation would make it a proper English sentence.

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

why not Tanzania has rhinos? Poor English

the words given is tuna which is we have.

I would imagine it to go something like this, We have rhinoceros in Tanzania, or the comma works after "In Tanzania."
