KITENDEWILI – TEGA

NG’OMBE WA KWETU HUCHUNGIA ZIZINI –

MACHO

Chanzo cha kitendawili hicho chaangalia macho ambayo hufanya kazi zake bila kuondoka kwenye mwili. Macho hayo huona kila upande utakaongalia bila kuachana na mwili huo. Hivyo huwa yameungana vizuri na mwili huo kwa muda wote. Hayawezi kuondoka kwenye mwili ulionayo. Huwa yapo tu kwenye mwili huo.

Kitendawili hicho hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye hufanya kazi zake akiwa ameungana vizuri na wenzake. Mtu huyo huwa na umoja na wenzake katika utekelezaji wa majukumu yake yote. Huzifanya kazi hizo apewazo na wakubwa au watu wa nyumbani kwake, vizuri.

Zaidi ya hayo, mtu huyo huvilinda vizuri vitu avipatavyo maishani mwake. Huvilinda pia vile ambavyo nivya wenzake, ili viweze kuwasaidia wote katika siku za mbeleni. Huwafundisha pia wenzake namna ya kuvitunza vizuri hivyo vitu vyao.

Kitendawili hicho hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na umoja na wenzao katika utendaji wao wa kazi za kila siku. Umoja huo waweza kuwasaidia katika kuishi kwa amani na kuvitunza vizuri vitu wavipatavyo maishani mwao. Umoja huo pia huleta maendeleo katika familia, jumuiya na nchi zao.

Zaidi ya hayo, kitendawili hicho, chafundisha watu juu ya kuvitunza vizuri vitu wavipatavyo, kama vile macho yautunzavyo mwili muda wote yatekelezapo majukumu yake. Yafaa watu wafundishane vizuri namna ya kuzitunza vizuri mali zao na za jumuiya zao.

ENGLISH: I HAVE A RIDDLE – LET IT COME

COWS OF OUR HOME FEED WHILE THEY ARE IN THE COWSHED – EYES

The literal meaning of the overhead proverb is about eyes and the way they function without leaving their sockets. Eyes can see every place where one focuses them, but they won’t leave one’s body; they are firmly attached to it throughout. They cannot leave the body; they are part of it.

That paradox is likened to a person who engages in his/her work effectively in collaboration with others. He/she is able to accomplish his/her responsibilities using a united approach with colleagues. Such a person satisfactorily undertakes the tasks assigned to him/her by family members.

In addition, the person is able to safeguard the things that he/she acquires in life, including those of other people, for posterity. He/she also teaches people how to diligently safeguard what they possess.

The puzzle imparts in people the necessity of being united with their peers in their daily activities. Such unity can help them live peacefully, besides affording them the ability to safeguard their valuable possessions in life. Also, progress in the family, in the community and in the country is brought about by unity.

Moreover, the proverb also teaches people on how to take care of the things they acquire, just like the eyes take care of the body throughout their vigilance function. People ought to understand how to diligently protect their own property and that of their communities.
