ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT AND MACHINE NAMES

As the world experiences technological innovations and developments; the Swahili language has also had to take major steps, especially in coming up with names to the modern day electrical equipments and machines. However, some of the names used in Kiswahili are directly translated from the English or Arabic languages. This is because Kiswahili is mainly a composition of the Arabic and African Bantu intermarriage.
