Here Is How To Call Smartphone In Kiswahili Sanifu As Tanzanians Reveal The Correct Vocabulary

Great and educative news has today emerged on the correct name to call a semaphone. CNN journalist Larry Madowo on Monday elicited discussion on Twitter page over Tanzanian Swahili vocabulary which he felt is increasingly becoming made up.

The renowned media personality was dumbfounded upon learning that the Swahili word for smartphones is 'vishkwambi' a word he didn't believe exists. "Tanzanians call smartphones {vishkwambi} in Kiswahili sanifu. They’re just making up words now. Tanzanians need to be stopped," Larry tweeted. The vocabulary has elicited mixed reactions from people on social media as the name really sound funny and sort like of a joke. 

Tanzanians are believed to be the people speaking the correct Kiswahili vocabulary and thus the new vocabulary for calling a smartphone should be also embraced by Kenyans where by they should stop calling it other names which are not 'kiswahili sanifu'.
