KISWAHILI: MGUU NI NGOMBE TAKO HULAZA NJAA.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye upataji wa mali na ukosaji wa mali hizo. Mtu atembeaye hufanana na yule atafutaye mali hizo ambaye aweza kuzipata.

Lakini yule ambaye hukaa muda wote bila kufanya kazi, huzikosa mali hizo. Hali hiyo husababisha kulaza watu wake bila kula. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘mguu ni ng’ombe tako hulaza njaa.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye hutafuta mali au vitu kwa kufanya kazi zile aziwezazo maishani mwake, ambazo zaweza kuwapatia mahitaji yao watu waishio kwenye familia yake.

Yeye aelewa kuwa, yule utumiae muda wake kwa kukaa bila kufanya kazi, hukosa mahitaji ya kuendeshea vizuri familia yake. Kumbe ni kweli kwamba, ‘mguu ni Ng’ombe tako hulaza njaa.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kufanya kazi zile ziwezazo kuwapatia mahitaji ya kuweza kuzitunza familia zao, maishani mwao. Yafaa watu hao, waziache tabia za uvivu katika kufanya kazi.

ENGLISH: A FOOT IS FOR COW AND A BUTTOCK IS FOR HUNGER.

The source of the above proverb comes from the acquisition and loss of property. The person who travels is like the one who seeks those possessions and is likely to possess them. But, for someone who doesn’t travel he/she is likely not to have possession of properties. Such a person who doesn’t travel is likely to die of hunger. This is why people can warn others by telling them that ‘a foot is for cow and a buttock is for hunger.’

This proverb can be comparable to a person who seeks properties or possessions by working hard in his/her life knowing that, if he/she just stays in one place, he/she will never succeed. He/she knows that idleness can result into suffering in life.

This proverb teaches people about working hard in order to provide for the family necessities and avoid being lazy.

John 6: 21-22
