Could somebody explain why "turistit haluavat puhua suomea mutta he eivät osaa" is wrong?

It isnt necessary to put 'he' but most people would So it should be accepted

    It is not wrong.

    Ditto. There appears to be random correctness to use or not use pronouns.

    I agree. "Mutta he eivät osaa" should be considered correct.

    They are contracting mutta and eivät, see other variants here: https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/mutteiv%C3%A4t
