What is the difference between ya and za


Ya indicates that habari is singular and za indicates that it's plural. Since "news" and "information" are uncountable in English, that doesn't make a lot of intuitive sense from an English point of view, but habari can be either ("piece of information/news", "pieces of information/news"). In practice though, you generally say habari za ... but habari yako is much more common than habari zako.


za was not a choice to select. Should it have been Habari ya leo?
