I don't quite understand the use of the "wa" subject prefix here. Can anyone explain this?

In Swahili, countries can be referred to using wa- to indicate the individual people. It could also be itafanya I think.

Elsewhere in this same lesson this is translated as "marekani kura kampeni" very confusing
