KISWAHILI: KITENDAWILI – TEGA

NG’OMBE ZA KWETU ZINA RANGI USONI – MTI.

Chanzo cha kitendawili hicho kinauangalia mti unaoitwa ‘wiluli” (mti wenye rangi mbalimbali). Mti huo hutoa mbegu nyeupe chini kwenye shina lake. Hivyo basi, mtu huo hulinganishwa na ng’ombe mwenye mabaka meupe usoni.

Kitendawili hicho hulinganishwa kwa watu hasa wazazi wanavyoishi na kuwafundisha watoto wao. Mtoto hawezi kuwa tofauti na yale afundishwayo na tabia za wazazi wake.

Wazazi wanatakiwa kuwa na tabia njema za kuweza kuwafundisha watoto wao kwa kuiga maisha yao ili waweze nao kuishi vizuri na watu wengine. Kitendawili hicho hufanana na methali isemayo ‘Uji hufuata kiwiko.’

Kitendawili hicho, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na tabia njema iwezayo kuwakuza vyema watoto wao na kuwalea kwa kuwapatia mifano ya kuiga ili waweze kujijengea tabia njema iwezayo kuwaletea maendeleo maishani mwao.
