Swahili term or phrase: mimi na penda wewe
in a text message...
G de Villiers
I love you
Explanation:
The phrase means "I love you". Often, you will also hear "Mimi naku penda". I am not sure whether the author of the text message is a native speaker, but I suspect not. the 'naku' in the alternate is a directional term. The 'ku' refers to you.
