When are we going to get rid of these translations of "have to" for the Swahili subjunctive in the absence of a preceding word like "lazima" or "sharti" or some other construction that actually does imply "have to". IMO, translating the simple Swahili subjunctive with the English words "have to" is incorrect.

Did you report it?

Well, to the extent possible. On the PC version, Duo has taken away the ability to explain why you are reporting something as an error. Anyway it's been reported probably a few thousand times by now.
