In Kiswahili, it is so simple using person pronouns, the important thing is to remember that it saves the same work as nouns. So do not use them together in a construction.

You either choose for a noun or a pronoun. this is normal with other world language  such as

English as there is no way you can use “she” in the same sentence with a name like “Elizabeth”

for example  you can’t say : Elizabeth she is coming ,

You must choose one: either Elizabeth is coming or she is coming.

In Kiswahili , you just choose one of them but in other context you can find both a noun and pronoun are used together especially for foreground (Emphasis).

Examples; wewe juma njoo
