KISWAHILI: ACHA KAMA ULIVYOACHA ZIWA

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye kuacha kunyonya kwa mtoto kwenye ziwa la mama yake. Mtoto akizaliwa hunyonya maziwa ya mama yake, mpaka anakua kiasi cha kutosha kula chakula. Akikua mtoto huyo huachishwa kunyonya ziwa na mama yake. Akiachishwa hivyo, mtoto huyo hukoma kunyonya na hatarudia. Ndiyo maana watu huambiana kwamba, ‘acha kama ulivyoacha ziwa.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu aliyefanya kitu kibaya kwa wenzake, ambao humwambia akome kufanya hivyo, kama alivyo koma kunyonya ziwa kwa mama yake. Watu hao aliowatendea kitendo hicho, yule mkosefu, huumia sana mpaka kufikia hatua ya kumwambia mtu huyo kwamba, ‘acha kama ulivyoacha ziwa.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha kutenda matendo mauvu katika jamii, kwa sababu matendo hayo huwaumiza sana wenzao. Ndiyo maana wao humwambia, mtu huyo aache maovu hayo kama alivyoacha kunyonya ziwa kwa mama yake.

ENGLISH: STOP AS YOU STOPPED FEEDING AT YOUR MOTHER’S BREAST

This proverb has its origin in breastfeeding. It is obvious that when a baby is born, it begins by feeding at its mother’s breasts until when it is old enough to eat other food stuff.

At the time the baby begins eating other food stuff the mother can stop him/her from breastfeeding.

This proverb can be compared to a person who does something wrong to his/her friends then warned against it. The warning can be associated with stopping such a wrong behaviour in the same way he/she stopped sucking from his/her mother’s breasts.’

This proverb teaches people to stop doing bad things in the society because they hurt others. That is why they tell wrong doers to stop their evil deeds in order not to harm the society.

Colossians 3: 5.
