Kiswahili: Hadithi Ya SIMBA NA JOGOO

Hapo zamani, kulikuwa na Simba na Jogoo, ingawa  waliishi jirani lakini hawakuonana ana kwa ana. Bali kila mara walikuwa wanasikiana kwa sauti ya kila mmoja.

Siku moja Simba aliisikia sauti ya Jogoo mnamo saa tisa za usiku. Simba akamuuliza Fisi,  “Sauti ninayoisikia ni ya nani?”

“Ni sauti ya Jogoo,” Fisi alijibu. “Huyo Jogoo anaishi wapi?”“Anaishi na kuwika huko kijijini!” “Je, huyo  Jogoo ni mkubwa kama mimi?”

“Ni mkubwa kupita wewe!”

Fisi alimjibu hivyo kwa sababu hakumpenda Simba. Hakumpenda kwa vile mara kwa mara Simba alikuwa anamfukuza Fisi wakati akila nyama. Fisi aliweza kula ile nyama ambayo simba ameila na kuiacha baada ya kushiba.

Hapo Simba akanyofoa unyoya wake wa shingoni na kumpa Fisi ili aende kumpelekea Jogoo. Jogoo aliupokea ule unyoya wa Simba, naye akamkabidhi unyoya wake wa shingoni ili kumpelekea Simba.

 Lo! Simba alipouona ule unyoya wa Jogoo alistaajabu sana. Hapo Simba akang’oa usinga kwenye mashavu yake. Jogoo alipouona usinga wa yule Simba, hakushangaa.

Hapo Jogoo akang’oa unyoya mrefu wa mkiani, akampa Fisi ampelekee Simba. Wakati simba anakabidhiwa ule unyoya wa mkia wa Jogoo, aliogopa sana.

Akamwambia Fisi wahamie mbali ndani ya msitu. Simba aliogopa zaidi Fisi alipomwambia kuwa Jogoo alikusudia kuja kuonana naye, ili wapimane nguvu.

Hapo simba alishikwa na hofu kubwa hata akamlazimisha Fisi kuondoka kijijini na kutokomea mbali porini. Hadi leo Simba haishi kijijini bali huishi porini.
