"The tour guide needs money"

Translation:Mtembeza watalii anahitaji pesa

November 17, 2019



There are many other words for money besides "pesa", e.g. fedha, hela, shilingi, etc. Using any of those words instead of "pesa" ought to be acceptable.


Shilingi is the name of the currency (like dollar) but yes the others probably should be accepted, though I think “hela” is more archaic/dialectal.
