KISWAHILI: NGOZI ILIYOMFUNIKA MWENZAKO NA WEWE URUDI KUILALIA!

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia ngozi ambayo hutumika katika kumfunika marehemu wakati wa kumzika. Mwili wa marehemu huwa unafunikwa kwa ngozi hiyo ambayo marehemu huzikwa nayo. Kumbe basi, ngozi hiyo, siyo ya kutumika kwa mtu ng’wingine tena. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘Ngozi iliyoomfunika mwenzako na wewe urudi kuilalia!’

Methali hiyo huzungumzwa kwa mtu mwanaume aliyemrithi mjane ambaye ni mke wa marehemu ndugu yake. Wanandugu wa marehemu huyo, huwa wanafahamu kwamba mjane huyo anaugonjwa ambao ndio uliomuua marehemu mume wake mwanamke huyo.  Marehemu aliambukizwa ugonjwa huo na mke wake huyo. Ndiyo maana watu wakiwemo wanandugu wa mwanaume huyo humuonya mtu yule, kwa kumwambia kwamba, ‘Ngozi iliyoomfunika mwenzako na wewe urudi kuilalia!’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha mila za kurithi wajane ili waweze kutunza afya na maisha yao. Uachaji wa mila kama hizo potovu, kutawasaidia watu hao katika kubaki salama maishani mwao.

Yer. 5:45.
