KISWAHILI: UMETUCHUNGIA KWENYE ARDHI TASA.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia mchungaji wa mifugo. Mchungaji huyo huwachungia mifugo wake kwenye eneo jeupe, yaani, lisilo na majani. Hapo ni peusi kama kwenye bambasi au sehemu isiyoota nyasi. Mifugo hao hurudi nyumbani bila kushiba kwa sababu wamechungiwa kwenye bambasi. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, amewachungia kwenye bambasi. Maana yake mifugo hao hawajashiba.

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu wale ambao huwapikia chakula kisichowatosha watu wao. Hao ni watu wasiowapatia watu wao mahitaji ya kutosha kuwawezesha kuishi inavyotakia. Watu hao hufanana na mchungaji wa mifugo awachungiaye mifugo wake kwenye bambasi wakashindwa kushiba. Ndiyo maana watu hao, ambao hawajashiba chakula, humwambia mpishi wao kwamba, ‘umetuchungia kwenye bambasi.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu  kuwatunza vizuri watu wao, wakiwemo wafanyakazi na watoto wao. Matunzo hayo yatawasaidia wafanya kazi wao katika kupata haki zao vizuri, na watoto wao kupata malezi yawezayo kuwajengea tabia njema maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: YOU HAVE GRAZED US ON A BARREN LAND.

The origin of this proverb is a herdsperson. The person grazed his flock on a plain land with barren vegetation. This is usually a grass-free place and, therefore, not suitable for pasture. Thus, the animals returned home hungry and unsatisfied because they had been grazed on a barren vegetation area. That is why people, usually unsatisfied, say, ‘you have grazed us on a barren land’. It means that they have not have not been satisfied.

The proverb is used to tell those who cook inadequate food for their people. They are people who do not provide enough food for their people to survive. These people are like a herdsman who grazes his herds on a barren land. That is why unsatisfied people tell their cooks, ‘you have grazed us on a barren land.’

The proverb teaches people about taking good care of their people, including workers and their children. This care will help the workers have free access to their rights, and their children to receive training for building their future lives.

Ezekiel 34: 1-2.
