Glossing Africa

‘Habari yako?’

Could I make a start like this?
Should I write a translation at the bottom of this page? 
Should I put the translation between brackets?
Or just leave at as it is? 
All kinds of possibilities. So what will a writer / editor / publisher do with the odd word out? 

Namwali Serpell writes about it in the New York Review of Books

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
