Translation:The broken pair of scissors

My complaint is that "bovu" means rotten, spoiled, or useless. If something is broken, it usually IS useless, but "useless" does not mean "broken". My language helper could not think of a Swahili adjective that specifically means "broken", only ones that mean "bad" and other more general adjectives like that, and like useless, "bovu". To say broken, she could only think of the verb, and say, "It has been broken" (vimevunjika)
