Why is "I really don't like dirt" not also accepted?

the Swahili sentence is not emphasizing the speaker's dislike for dirt, it's more of 'truly I don't like dirt', almost like it's a realization or an honest-to-God truth. Something like 'sipendi uchafu kabisa' would translate to 'I really don't like dirt'
