I read a discussion in the lesson that says pronouns are optional. So, can i say wao hawana maji? This was marked wrong.

You can definitely say that. The difference is that you're emphasising "they", like, maybe "We have water but they don't have water." Report it as a correct sentence if you do this lesson again and one day hopefully all of these other possibilities will be added.
