In Zim slang "maya" simply means 'no' or 'negative.'

It is mostly used when someone asks you a question of whether something is true or false. Hence, if you respond by saying 'maya' you will be answering the question in disagreement with the subject matter.

Note: The antonym of maya is 'bho' (or alternatively written as bhoo) which obviously means 'yes' or 'okay.'

Example Usage: "Maya, boss. Madhiri edu haasati achata. Ikabaka ndokufonerayi."
