LALAGO UPO KWENYE MWAMBA.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye hali ya njaa iliyotokea kwa watu wa Ntuzu. Ntuzu ilikuwa tarafa ya wilaya ya Bariadi, Mkoani Simiyu. Watu hao wa Ntuzu, katika kuhemea kwao walisikia kwamba mtama unapatikana Lalago iliyoko wilayani Maswa.

Walipoenda huko, kweli waliukuta upo mtama huo, tena ulikuwa bado kwenye mwamba wa kuupigia. Wakawa wanauziwa kwa bei nafuu. Wakawa wakipeana taarifa kwa kusema kwamba, ‘Lalago upo kwenye mwamba.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu ambao huwasaidia wenzao walioko kwenye matatizo mbalimbali yakiwemo yale ya njaa, na mengine mengi. Watu hao huwafundisha pia wenzao, namna ya kuishi kwa kusaidiana hivyo, maishani mwao. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘Lalago upo kwenye mwamba.’

Methali hiyo yafundisha watu juu ya kuwasaidia watu wao walioko kwenye matatizo, ili waweze kuyatatua mapema matatizo hayo.

ENGLISH: IN LALAGO SORGHUM ARE ON THE ROCK.

The source of this saying is famine that affected the Ntuzu people. Ntuzu was a division in Bariadi district, Simiyu Region. The Ntuzu people heard that sorghum was found in Lalago in Maswa district.

When they visited the place, they could see plent of it and it was still on the rock; a place for drying after harvesting it. The sorghum was sold cheaply to the Ntuzu people. As a way to encourage each other to visit the place, they could say ‘in Lalago millet are on the rock.’

The saying can be compared to people who help others during distress time, including hunger, and many others. It also teaches people how to live by helping each other in their lives. This is why people can say ‘in Lalago sorghum are on the rock’ to communicate care and offering a helping hand.

The proverb teaches people about helping their fellows who are in crisis so that they can solve their problems.
