Why can't it be How is Rehema? The translation shows that.

Because that is a question, and the sentence doesn't end with a question mark?

Swahili is a bit like English in that respect. A statement can be made a question by intonation, or in the case of written material by punctuation. So the lack of a question mark indicates this is not a question.
