You didn't say how you understand the meaning, and I can't see the other exercises from here, but this is what Wikipedia says about the consecutive/narrative tense prefix '-ka-':
The consecutive tense is mainly used with the past tense -li- in narrating a sequence of events whereby -li- is used for the first verb and -ka- for subsequent verbs. It roughly carries the meaning "and then" and makes the use of na "and" or halafu / kisha "then" essentially redundant.
In this exercise, the sentence is in the imperative, but the principle is the same. ("Go and then buy ..." = Go and buy ... / Go buy ...)
