KISWAHILI: IMEKULA MSEMAJI.

Chanzo cha msemo huu chaangalia kitu kilichokula mtu ambaye husema maneno yaoneshayo kwamba yeye ni mkweli. Mtu huyo huitwa msemaji. Hivyo, akipata tatizo huyo msemaji watu husema, ‘Imekula msemaji.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu wale ambao hujidai kuwa wao ni watu wazuri au wakweli. Watu hao huwa wa kwanza kwenda kuwapatanisha wenzao waliogombana maishani mwao.

Kwa hiyo, watu wengine huwafikiria watu hao kama vile hawawezi kupata matatizo ya kugombana wao kwa wao. Hivyo basi, wakigombana watu hao wawapatanishao wenzao, wale waliopatanishwa husema, ‘Imekuka msemaji.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu kuacha tabia ya kujidai hovyo maishani mwao. Maisha hayo, yatawasaidia katika kupata nguvu za kuwahudumia watu wao vizuri.

(Waroma 2: 1-2).

ENGLISH: IT HAS EATEN THE SPEAKER.

The origin of this proverb is something that affects someone who utters a word of truth. That person is called the speaker. So, when the speaker gets in trouble, people say, ‘It has eaten the speaker.’

The proverb is used to warn people who parade themselves as good or honest. These people are usually the first to go and reconcile rivals.

Some people, therefore, think of such people as being free from conflicts. So, when they get into an argument, those who are reconciled say, ‘It has eaten the speaker.’

The proverb teaches people to break the cycle of self-indulgence in their lives. Such a life will help them find the strength to serve their people well.

(Romans 2: 1-2)
