KISWAHILI: ASIYEWEZA KUNYEMELEA HATAUA MYAMA PORI

Chanzo cha methali hiyo huangalia wawindaji  wenye vibali harali vya kuwindia wanyama pori. Mtu akitaka kuua mnyaga pori hutakiwa kuwa na maandalizi ya kuchukua silaha za kuulia kama vile: mishale, mkuki, na bunduki ili aweze kufanikisha lengo lake hilo. Hutakiwa kufahamu pia mwelekeo wa upepo na kuwa na uwezo wa kuwanyemelea wanyama hao. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘Asiyeweza kunyemelea hutaua mnyama pori.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu mwenye umakini wa kufanya maandalizi yaliyo kamilika kabla ya kuanza kufanya kazi yoyote iliyo ngumu. Mtu huyo hupata mafanikio mengi katika kazi zake kwa sababu afahamu kwamba, ‘asiyeweza kunyemelea hataua mnyama pori.’

Kuweza kunyemelea hufananishwa na kuwa na maandalizi makamilifu kabla ya kufanya kazi yoyote ile iliyo ngumu. Kuua mnyama pori hulinganishwa na kupata mafanikio ya kutoka kwenye kazi yake mtu huyo.

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na umakini wa kufanya maandalizi makamilifu kabla ya kufanya kazi yoyote ile iliyo ngumu. Umakini huo huwasaidia watu hao katika kupata mafanikio mengi kwenye kazi zao yawezayo kuziendeleza vizuri familia zao.

Yafaa watu hao wawe na umakini wa kujiandaa kikamilifu kabla hawajaanza kuzifanya kazi zao ili waweze kupata mafanikio ya kuweza kuziendesha vizuri familia zao.

ENGLISH: HE/SHE WHO DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO STALK CANNOT KILL PREY

The overhead proverb relates to hunting wild game, especially by those who are licensed to do so. If a hunter intends to accomplish his/her goal, the person must be sufficiently prepared with suitable weapons like: arrows, spears and rifles. And apart from being able to tell the direction of the wind, the hunter should also have the capacity to stealthily stalk or track the animals. This is why people would say, “He/she who does not know how to stalk cannot kill a wild animal.”

The proverb is compared to a person who is careful to do thorough preparation before undertaking any difficult task. Such a person is sure to achieve a lot of success in his/her endeavors, with the realization that ‘He/She who knows not how to stalk cannot kill a wild animal.’

‘Procrastination’ is a term used to mean not having thorough preparation before undertaking any difficult task. It is compared to laziness. On the other hand, killing a wild animal is compared to gaining the success of a job.

The proverb teaches people to be keen on making proper preparations before undertaking any task. This principle would help them achieve more success in their activities, which would in turn guarantee better families.
