Zinza is a Bantu language spoken by about 140,000 people in the Mwanza Region of Tanzania, mainly on the southwest shore of Lake Victoria and on a number of nearby islands.
Zinza has four dialects: Zinza, Subi, Longo and Kula, the most presitigous of which is Zinza. It is closely related to Nyambo, Nyankore, Haya and Kerewe.
“Chaandikilwe chíti, ‘Omulamye Múungu Omukáma wáawe, na omukolele weényini weénka.’”
“It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’”
