Also need help with Swahili translation - Hi. I used to live in Kenya, but my Kiswahili is minimal at this point. A friend sent me a poem that I'm having difficulty with and was wondering if anyone was familiar enough to help me with it. Here goes:
1- Watu wenye sura mbili, unao wasimulia
Si watu ni makubeli, wako tayari kuua
Tukae nao kwa mbali, roho wasije zitoa
Watu wasio murua, ni maadui wa kweli.

2- Wasifu wao tumbili, kila mti wachupia
Vipando vyetu halali, haweshi kuvivamia
Tena wafanya kejeli, majumbani waingia
Watu wasio murua, ni maadui wa kweli.

3- Hawajali hawabali, wendekeza ya dunia
Nyoyo zao za jabali, imani 'mewapotea
Wanajikumbizia mali, nundu zao za ngamia
Watu wasio murua, ni maadui wa kweli.

4- Asiyemcha Jalali, Muumba wetu Jalia
Hafai hastahili, kuwaongoza raia
Isiwe mara ya pili, fursa kumuachia
Watu wasio murua, ni maadui wa kweli.

5- Beti tano ni kamili, kuongeza sina nia
Kwa chako kitendawili, jibu nimekutolea
Nambie ewe Hashili, kama nimekipatia
Watu wasio murua, ni maadui wa kweli.
