Where would the object affix come if kupiga is used for a transitive verb? I suppose 'you have kicked me' would be umenipiga teke.? It would be nice to have this confirmed.

you're right! Or for 'you have kicked Ed', it would be 'umempiga Ed teke'

Thanks for this additional information: that construction was actually much more difficult to guess.
