Should "Wamepora" work?


No, the object of kupora is the place or sometimes the person from whom you are stealing, not the thing that you steal, which is the object of -iba.

Wamepora maktaba ya shule na kuiba vitabu vya wanafunzi.
= They have looted the school library and stolen the students' books.


The books were stolen by DL.


DL is obcessed with stealing. I have been to Ethiopia, Nigeria and Mozambique and no one has stolen anything from me. I wish I could say that about the US. I am getting ready to go back to Africa as soon as I can. It is a beautiful and safe place.
