KISWAHILI: MHESHIMIWA ALIYEKOKA HADHI.

Chanzo cha msemo huo chaangalia ukubwa na wepesi wa mtu. Ukubwa huo waweza kuwa wa miaki mingi ya kuishi duniani, au wa kupata kazi kubwa mahali fulani.

Ukubwa wa miaka mingi haupiti. Lakini basi, ule ukubwa wa kupata kazi kubwa au wa kupata madaraka, huisha mara yaishapo madaraka hayo. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘mheshimiwa aliyekosa hadhi.’

Msemo huo hulinganishwa kwa mtu aliyepata madaraka kwa kupewa kazi kubwa katika maeneo yake, baadaye madaraka hayo yaliondolewa kwake.  Alipokuwa na madaraka hayo mtu huyo, watu alimheshimu sana, lakini alipokosa kazi, watu wengi walimdharau, pengine ni kwa sababu ya maringo na dharau zake kwa watu alizokuwa nazo wakati alipokuwa kwenye madaraka hayo makubwa. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘mheshimiwa aliyekosa hadhi.’

Msemo huo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia ya kudharau watu, na kuwa na majivuno, wakati wakiwa madarakani, maishani mwao. Yafaa watu hao wafanye kazi zao kwa kuishi kwa heshima na watu wote.

ENGLISH: THE UNRESPECTED HONOURABLE

The source of the above saying is a boss who has lost his/her status. This respect being talked about in this saying can come because of someone’s age or nature of job one is doing. The respect that comes from age can be more permanent than the one that comes from the nature of job. Therefore, there is a possibility of someone holding a top position in leadership to be demoted. In such a context, the demoted person can be labeled as unrespected honourable.

The saying can be compared to a person who has been given a great deal of responsibility in his/her area. When the power diminishes, he/she comes to be an ordinary person. This is why people call him, ‘the unrespected honourable.’

The saying teaches people to stop promoting stereotype in life by being arrogant when in power. Rather, they should do their jobs by respecting others as well.
