unbwogable
 adj.— «If you were in Kenya during the elections you would certainly have discovered that Kenyan Swahili got a new word into the vocabulary: “unbwogable.” The rap song “Can you bwogo me?” by the Luo rappers Gidigidi-MajiMaji was widely used in the NARC campaigns to get the message out. “Bwogo” is a Dohluo word that means “to scare,” and hence “unbwogable” translates to unscarable or unshakeable.» —“Unbwogable—A report from Kenya” by Gunnar Rønning Usenet: soc.culture.african Jan. 31, 2003.
