Stinky; bad smell. Mainly used for an uncleaned calabash that will turn milk sour quickly, a calabash that is due for cleaning as you see that the milk in it is clotting. Most murran calabashes become kong’u because they are not prepared properly. Especially happens to milk kept in plastic all day or longer. This milk tastes even worse than from a dirty calabash. Also used generally to describe the smell of bad milk or meat, rotting fruit or cabbage, as well as some old meat with a strong smell, such as that from an old goat. In all cases, it’s something smelly, but you can still eat it, unlike something that is kesamis. The opposite of koropili, smelling nice.

Notes. Negative.
