Weekend in My Village

WEEKEND IN MY VILLAGEIt is interesting to note that in the Swahili culture the day starts at sunrise,
which in East Africa, being exactly at the Equator, happens every day at approximately 6:00 a.m. And for that reason, 6:00 a.m is 0:00 a.m Swahili time.
By "Swahili time" I mean the time as spoken in Swahili.
So the hands of a watch or clock meant to read Swahili time would always point to a number opposite to the number for the actual time as spoken in English.
That is, the Swahili time anywhere in the world (not just East Africa) is delayed by 6 hours.
