KISWAHILI: KITENDAWILI – TEGA.

KUTEMBEA KWAKE NDIVYO KUCHEZA KWAKE – KINYONGA.

Chanzo cha kitendawili hicho chaangalia kiumbe kinachoitwa Kinyonga. Kinyonga ni mdudu ambaye hutembea kwa kusitasita, kama anacheza kumbe ndivyo asafirivyo. Katika kuenenda kwake hivyo, yeye hufaulu kufika kule aendeko. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, kutembea kwakwe kinyonga ndivyo kucheza kwake.

Kitendawili hicho hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye hufanya kazi zake kwa uangalifu na umakini mkubwa. Mtu huyo huweza kuzitekeleza vizuri kazi zake. Kumbe yafaa watu wawe na uangalifu wa kutosha kuzitekeleza kazi zao kama itakiwavyo. Kwa kufanya hivyo, wataweza kupata maendeleo mengi katika familia na jumuiya zao.

Kitendawili hicho, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na uangalifu wa kuwawezesha kuzitekeleza vizuri shughuli na kazi zao zote. Uangalifu huo utawaletea mafanikio mengi yawezayo kuwasaidia katika kuzijenga familia na jumuiya zao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: I HAVE A RIDDLE – LET IT COME…

IT WALKS AS IT PLAYS – CHAMELEON

The overhead riddle focuses on the peculiar locomotion of a cameleon, a creature that walks as if it is dancing. Indeed, it reaches its destination successfully, by use of that style.

The riddle is comparable to a person who does his/her work keenly and with the seriousness it deserves. The end result here would be work well done. It is not only important but also appropriate for people to carry out their duties with care. By doing so, their families and communities are bound to benefit more in terms of development and progress.

That paradox enlightens people about the need for diligence in undertaking their obligations and tasks. Taking caution brings about many positive achievements that can help build their families as well as their communities.

In addition, the riddle instills in people the important quality of being focused in the execution of their roles and responsibilities. Such keenness and perceptiveness can enable them to effectively harness resources that can be used to uplift their lives, their families and their communities.
