KISWAHILI: UTAMBI MPYA HUMALIZA MAFUTA

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye hali ya utambi mpya. Utambi huo huchukua mafuta mengi ya kutosha kuiwezesha taa kuwaka. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘utambi mpya humaliza mafuta.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye ni mgumu wa kuelewa kile anachoambiwa na wenzake. Mtu huyo humfanya yule anayemwelewesha amalize maneno mengi, bila kuelewa. Mweleweshaji wake huyo, humaliza maneno mengi bila kumwezesha mtu huyo kuelewa, kile anachomwambia. Ndio maana watu humwambia mtu huyo, kwamba, ‘utambi mpya humaliza mafuta.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na umakini wa kuelewa mapema kile wanachoelezwa na wenzao, na kukifanyia kazi kile kilicho chema katika kuwaletea maendeleo, maishani mwao.

Yohana 14:8-9.

ENGLISH: A NEW WICK USES A LOT OF KEROSINE

The above proverb stems from a situation of a new wick.The new wick uses a lot of kerosine to keep the light on. This makes people to say, “a new wick uses a lot of kerosine.”

The proverb is used to refer to someone who does not understand what is being told by his/her companion. Such a person makes whoever is explaining something to him/her to use a lot words in vain.That is why people tell such people that, “a new wick uses a lot of kerosine.”

The proverb teaches people to listen and understand what they are told by their companions and use whaever it is good to bring progress to their lives.
