Why huKUcheza? And not Humecheza? Is this another rule i dont know yet?


Maybe, it is a bit difficult for us to know which rules you know :) Anyway, here are the infixes for the different past tenses

Umecheza: You have played

Hujacheza: You have not played

Ulicheza: You played

Hukucheza: You didn't play


to add to Ernst's comment, the tense infix '-me-' is always in the affirmative, and it shows present perfect tense. It's negative counterpart is '-ja-'
