Mashindano also seems to be used as match but match is not accepted here! Very confusing

Should "match" be accepted?

As Swahili has no definite or indefinite article, ‘a competition’ should be allowed as a correct translation.

I'm confused, 'a competition' is the answer given above

I am also confused... when I put ‘a competition’ as the answer, it said I was incorrect and the answer was simply ‘competition’.

it's possible it was corrected after someone brought it up :)
