Help me understand the reason it must be "ma ke kula" as opposed to "i ke kula"?

Aloha e Riceburns, 1 year on. No other posts. I echo your question. The example immediately before was e lawe 'oe i ke 'eke ha'awe i ke kula. Why the difference? Early lessons taught they were both ok. Recent lessons seem to specify. Others elsewhere have written thoughts but I still don’t understand and it just seems inconsistent— frustrating. E kokua, e ‘olu’olu. Mahalo nui hou.
