"Wangetembea wangeona mazingira mazuri"

Translation:If they were to walk, they would see the beautiful environment

This sentence is missing an article, either "the" or "a," before "beautiful."

"The" makes more sense in English than "a".

Native speaker of (American) English here. If the singular "environment" is used then an article is required: ... see a/the beautiful environment. However, if the plural word "surroundings" is used, then you have a choice of no article or definite article: -- see beautiful surroundings / see the beautiful surroundings. The second choice (with the definite article) still sounds better to me.
