Today 22 Nov 2012 is a very special day for me. I accidentally saw my article on mosquito control in Appropedia translated by Christopher Sam (http://www.appropedia.org/User:Kili , kiswahili appropedia org ) into Kiswahili (http://www.glcom.com/cyberswahili/swahili.htm). Article title there is Teknolojia GEM ya Kukabiliana na Mbu (http://www.appropedia.org/Teknolojia_ya_GEM_ya_Kukabiliana_na_Mbu ). It gives me immense pleasure. I earnestly wish to share the happiness with you all. Kiswahili (or Swahili) (http://www.glcom.com/cyberswahili/swahili.htm) is an African language spoken mainly by the people of eastern and central Africa. That is, people who live in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, eastern Zaire, northern Zaire, nothern Malawi, northern Mozambigue, nothern Zambia and Somali Republic. Although not widely as in the above mentioned countries, Kiswahili is also used by some people in Congo Brazavile, southern Sudan, the Comoro Islands, the northern part of malagasy Republic, and the Persian Gulf states. Kiswahili is a national language in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. I may possibly tell more about later.
