KISWAHILI: BUNDI ASUBIRI UGONJWA WA NDUGUYE

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye maisha ya Bundi. Bundi huyo huishi kwa kula vitu vilivyo kufa yaani, mizoga. Kwa hiyo basi, yeye aweza hata kusubiri ugonjwa umpate ndugu yake au baba yake, afe, yeye ale chakula. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘Bundi asubiri ugonjwa wa nduguye.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye husubiri kifo cha baba au ndugu yake, ili apate mali. Mtu huyo hufanana na Bundi yule aliyesubiri ugonjwa wa baba au ndugu yake, afe ili apate chakula, kwa sababu naye asubiri kifo hicho, ili apate mali. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia mtu huyo kwamba, yeye ni, ‘Bundi asubiri ugonjwa wa nduguye.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kutafuta mali kwa kutumia njia sahihi, siyo kuwaombea mabaya wenzao ili wao wapate mali.

owl

 

ENGLISH: AN OWL WAITED FOR THE SICKNESS OF ITS RELATIVE.

The source of the above saying is the life of an owl that depends on sickness or death of its close relatives. As the saying shows, owls depend on carcasses therefore, the death of other birds means life to owls.  This is why people say, ‘an owl waited for the sickness of its relatives.’

The saying can be compared to a person who waits for the death of his/her relatives for him/her to flourish. That person is like an owl that is waiting for his relative to die in order to get food. This is why people tell such people that, ‘an owl waited for the sickness of its relatives.’

The proverb teaches people to look for wealth in the right way, not to pray for evils to befall their relatives for them to live a comfortable life.

2Samuel 11: 14-17.
