I thought bibi was also a polite way to refer to a woman like ma'am in US
'Bibi' has multiple meanings. Also means wife
is it right?
can samahani and pole be used in the same context?
Pole expresses pity, samahani expresses apology.
"pole?" "samahani?" ???? help!
Bibi is considered very impolite in upcountry Kenya, and is used only to denote wife. Grandmother is 'nyanya', elderly women are addressed as 'mama mzee'.
