Vikembe in Swahili means an animal’s offspring.
In his Swahili lesson to Gidi and Ghost today, Yusuf Juma taught them the Swahili names of off-springs of animals found in Kenya.
He gave a list of name which is as follows:
Kigwena – A crocodile’s (mamba) offspring.
Kidanga – An elephant’s (ndovu) calf.
Kibui/Kibuli/Kimeme – A goat’s (mbuzi) offspring.
Chengo/Kichengo – A fish’s (samaki) offspring.
Kinyemere – A snake’s (nyoka) offspring.
Kinyaunyau/Kipusi – A kitten.
