Languages written in the Roman alphabet (Was: Re: Chinese whispers game)

Does Swahili not have its own script? I honestly did not know it used the
Roman alphabet.
Is is the same case with the other languages of the region (besides Ge'ez,
Amharic, etc.)? Are languages like Ewe also written in the Roman script?
