KISWAHILI: DUME LA MVA HALICHEZI NA WATOTO WA MBWA

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye maisha ya dume la mbwa na watoto wa mbwa. Dume hilo hukataa kucheza na watoto wa mbwa, kwa sababu lenyewe ni kubwa kwao, vinginevyo litawauma mpaka wataanza kulikimbia. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘dume la mbwa halichezi na watoto wa mbwa.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mzee mwenye familia na watoto wake. Mzee huyo huwa na heshima yake kwenye familiya yake, iyomuwezesha kuwalea vizuri watoto wake pamoja na familia yote. Kwa hiyo basi, siyo vizuri kucheza na watoto wake mzee huyo, kwa sababu akifanya hivyo watoto hao watamdharau maishani mwake. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘dume la mbwa halichezi na watoto wa mbwa.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha mazoea ya hovyo na watoto wao, ili waweze kuwalea vema kwa kujenga heshima inayotakiwa katika familia yote, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: A MALE DOG DOES NOT PLAY WITH PUPPIES

The source of the above proverb comes from the life of male dog and puppies. The male dog refuses to play with puppies because it is too big for them, otherwise it will bite them until they run away. This is why people say, ‘a male dog does not play with puppies.’

The proverb is likened to a family elder and his children. Elders tend to maintain their  respect to families in order to be able to take care of them. Therefore, it is not good for elders to play with children because they can disrespect them. This is why people warn elders by saying that ‘a male dog does not play with puppies.’

The proverb teaches people to stop being so intimate with children. This will help them from not being disrespected and disturb the whole process of taking care of them.
