      Kwa namna hiyo, Ginekweta inakuwa nchi tofauti na Ginebisau na pia Gine.
      In this way, Equatorial Guinea is a different country from both Guinea-Bissau and Guinea.
    • 2012, Benard Odoyo Okal, NAFASI YA TAFSIRI KATIKA TAALUMA YA ONOMASTIKI: UHAKIKI WA MBINU ZAKE KATIKA TAFSIRI YA TOPONOMASTIKI (Kiswahili Journal; 75)‎[2], Dar es Salaam, Tanzania: Journal of the Institute of Kiswahili Research, pages 27-42:
      Sauti /q/ haipo katika uchunguzi wa fonimu za lugha ya Kiswahili. Kwa hivyo mara nyingi sauti hii hutoholewa kwa kuhamishwa katika Kiswahili kama sauti /k/ na hatimaye kuchangia katika tafsiri ya majina ya nchi kama vile Iraq (Iraki), Qatar (Katari), Equatorial Guinea (Ginekweta) na Mozambique (Mozambiki).
      The sound /q/ is absent from research on the phonemes of Swahili. Therefore, this sound is frequently adapted by modification in Swahili as the sound /k/ and finally ends up in the translations of the names of countries like Iraki (Iraq), Katari (Qatar), Ginekweta (Equatorial Guinea), and Mozambiki (Mozambique}.
