    • “obusannyalazo” (electrons)
    • “obukwaaki’ (quarks).

The concept "akatinniinya" is formed by blending the words in the phrase "akatoffaalo akatini ennyo:

(viii) Obutunniinya (Alpha and beta particles). The concept "obutunniinya" is formed by blending the words in the phrase "obutundutundu obutini ennyo". Obutunniinya are actually "Obutoffaali"(any kindo of particles.

Don't confuse "obutoffaali"(particles) with the biological "obutaffaali"(cells)

  • Obusannyalazo (Electrons).
  • Okuva (Motion)

From "amasannyalaze" (electricity) , he has formed ,"Obusannyalazo". “Obusannyalazo” (electrons) are responsible for creation of “amasannyalaze” (electricity) due to their “flow” called “omugendo gw’obusannyalazo” (the flow of electrons).
