KISWAHILI: KITENDAWILI – TEGA.

BIBI ANAPOLIA WATU WANAFURAHI WANARUKA KWA FURAHA- NGOMA/ZEZE

Chanzo cha kitendawili hicho chaangalia wacheza ngoma. Watu hao hupiga ngoma ambayo hulia kwa kupigwa kwa nguvu. Lakini wachezaji wake hufurahia mno, wala hawahuzuniki kwamba mpigaji wake anaiumiza hiyo ngoma.

Kitendawili hicho hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye huhangaika katika kufanya kazi zake kwa nguvu nyingi, ili watu wake wapate kufurahi. Yatakiwa mmoja ajitoe kwa kufanya kazi hizo ziwezazo kuwaletea furaha watu wengi wamtegemeao.

Kitendawili hicho, hufundisha watu juu ya kujitoa kuwasaidia watu wengi kwa kufanya kazi ziwezazo kuwaletea furaha watu hao. Mtu apaswa kuwasaidia wake watu pale alipo, kama vile mzee katika familia atakiwavyo kujituma kwa nguvu zake katika kujitoa kuwafanyia kazi watu wake hao ili waweze kupata furaha.

Zaidi ya hayo, kitendawili hicho hufundisha watu juu ya kufuata njia ya Yesu aliyeteseka na kufa msalabani kwa ajili ya kuwakomboa wale wamwaminio. Twatakiwa wale tumwaminio yeye kufurahi kwa kucheza anapotupigia ngoma hiyo Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo.

ENGLISH: I HAVE A RIDDLE – LET IT COME.

WHEN THE GRANDMOTHER CRIES PEOPLE BECOME HAPPY AND THEY JUMP JOYOUSLY– DRUM/CALABASH MUSIC

The foundation of the above riddle is about music and dance. When the drummist beats the drum harder, the dancers grow more excited and the dancing gets more frenzied with the rising drum beat. The dancers do not get angry at the drummist for beating the drum hard.

The puzzle is likened to a person who, through struggle and great energy, works hard so that his dependants can enjoy the fruits of his labour. It is a noble thing for someone to sacrifice and undertake difficult tasks for the sake of bringing happiness to those who rely on him/her.

The riddle teaches about the commitment to help others by undertaking tasks that can bring joy to them. One ought to help one’s people wherever one is, just as an elder in the family would be required to play a lead role in his/her commitment to work hard enough and guarantee success and happiness to his/her people.

Above all, the riddle enlightens people about the need to follow Jesus’ way of suffering and dying on the Cross for the salvation of those who believe in Him. We need to rejoice when our Lord Jesus Christ invites us to dance to His drum – by following His commandments.
