Pye indimu ujitang’ang’hya. Nose ab’iye bhuyunjija ugulya ijo bhapujaga bhaling’wila giki, “ubhebhe ugajilekelaga ulu opuja. Nose wifugula uguyutega na uja ng’wipolu ugab’ona ng’waniki umo bhitogwa.

Nabhuja kung’wawe ya ng’waniki ng’wenuyo. Aho bhashiga ho, namhala uhaya, “napandika nkwilima.” Uwilwa gujufega ipolu itale gete kulushigu lumo. Nang’hwe uja ugandya ugufega. Uliduma linti limo gwike, wandya gulila ohaimanila jiza mhuli jung’wambilija ugulifega lyose.

KISWAHILI: Hadithi Ya Vijana Watatu

Walikuwepo wavulana watatu kwenye familia moja. Walioenda kutega ndege kila asubuhi. Mdogo wao kila aliponasa ndege, ndege alimwambia, “niachia rafiki yangu nitakusaidia kwenye siku za mbele.” Alimwachia.

  Wanyama wote aliwaeneza. Mwishowe wenzake walimkataza kula wale waliowanasa wao wakimwambia hivi, “wewe huwa unawaachia unapowanasa.

Mwishowe alizila kutega, akaenda porini. Huko alionana na msichana mmoja wakapendana. Akaenda kwa wazazi wake msichana huyo. Walipofika pale, mzee alisema, “nimepata mkwilima.”

Aliambiwa kwenda kufyeka pori kubwa kabisa kwa siku moja. Naye alienda na kuanza kufyeka. Alishindwa kuukata mti mmoja tu akaanza kulia, kushitukia, wakaja tembo wakamsaidia kulifyeka lote.

Baada ya kuimaliza kazi hiyo, aliambiwa kwenda kumwaga mbegu kwenye shamba kubwa la heka 10. Aliporudi, baba mkwe wake alimwambia, “nimeahilisha kulima, nenda ukaziokote zile mbegu zangu ziwe kama zilivyokuwa.” Naye kama alivyoelezwa alienda. Alipofika alishindwa wakaja ndege wakamsaidia kuziokota mbegu zile zote, akapeleka nyumbani, baba mkwe alifurahi kabisa.

Safari hii baba mkwe wake, alimwambia, “mtoto wangu nimeona kwamba utaoa hapa kwa sababu yote yale ninayokuambia unayatimiza. Sasa basi, nenda kwa mara ya mwisho, ukanikusanyie usiku ujae kwenye kikapu, uniletee hapa.”

Mvulana alienda lakini akijiuliza “nitawezaje kuushika usiku na kuuweka kwenye kikapu?”

Alipofika huko alikoambiwa, akaja Sungura, akamwambia, “kiache kikapu ukamwambie, nimejaza, lakini nipatie kata ya moshi nikabebee, nipatia sasa hivi.”

Mzee alipoambiwa hivyo, alishindwa namna ya kuukusanya huo moshi na akamwambia mvulana hivi, “nenda ukaumwage usiku, ulete nyumbani kile kikapu na umchukue mke wako.”
