"I do not want a rotten teacher"

Translation:Sitaki mwalimu mbovu

November 22, 2017



For the sentence, "Sitaki mwalimu mbovu," would this imply a teacher who is literally rotten, as in spoiled food? I would instead expect to hear mwalimu mbaya.


Why is "mwalimu mbaya" not accepted? Afterall a bad teacher is the same thing as a rotten teacher.
