Why not 'jioni njema'?

that would be more of a parting remark because you're wishing them a good evening. I think the 'good evening' here is meant as a greeting

Is this a question or a greeting? Why the question mark?

I believe 'habari za ...' is equivalent to asking 'how is ....', like ''how is your evening going?'

But yes, it is a bad example in English, as 'good evening' is a greeting and not a question.
