Its been a while since I have done my Swahili lessons and I feel bad about it, as I was really enjoying the daily routine, so let's get back to it
We will be using the word "Sahamani" (Excuse me) in formal situations, here are two situations:
Sahamani, naweza agiza kikombe cha kahawa?
Excuse me, could I order a cup of coffee?
Sahamani, Mombasa iko wapi?
Excuse me, where is Mombasa?
As you can see above you can use "Sahamani" to ask a question or to make an apology, furthermore it could also just be used to get someones attention.
