Can this not be "our provinces"?
Yep. Type that answer in next time you get this and report it as a valid translation.
Does this mean state as in State (apparatus/country)? Or state as in a sub-administrative region of a country?
Perhaps I should know this but, why is it not majimbo letu?
Because "letu" goes with a singular noun (JI) and "yetu" goes with a plural (MA) in this class.
That was my question too. Thanks to Catriona and all who make this Swahili course work.
