"A child has a pink shirt"
Translation:Mtoto ana shati la pinki
I'm having a hard time knowing when to use the article with a color. Sometimes you need to say "_ of [the color]" and sometime just "_ [color]. Do some colors need the article and some not? I get it when we are saying "rangi ya ____." But when we just have the noun, I don't know when to use the article. (gari jeusi or gari la jeusi). Can someone please help?
