KISWAHILI: UPENDO WA KIFARU KULA LANGALE.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye upendo wa kifaru wa kula langale. Kifaru ni mnyama poli ambaye hupenda kuishi peke yake. Lakini basi, mnyama huyo akipata kichaa, hula malangale ambayo hayaliwi hovyo na wanyama poli. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘upendo wa Kifaru kula langale.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye ni mlafi wa kula vyakula hovyo. Mtu huyo hula bila kujali aina ya chakula akilacho, hata kiwe kichafu, kama yule Kifaru aliyepata kichaa, alavyo langale. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia  mtu huyo kwamba, ‘upendo wa Kifaru kula langale.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia za ulafi wa kula vyakula hovyo, au uroho wa madaraka, ili wasije wakawapunja wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: THE JOY OF THE RHINOS IS TO EAT LANGALE.

The source of the above proverb derives from the rhino’s joy to eat ‘langale,’ certain specie of local tree. A rhino is a wild animal that likes to live alone. If this animal runs mad, it tends to eat things which normally it doesn’t eat. Langale is one of the food stuffs rhinos do not eat and when they appear to eat it then people will know that the rhino has run mad.

The proverb can be compared to a glutton person who doesn’t appear to be easily satisfied with the food given. Such a person eats anything that comes his/her way no matter the food is dirty or well prepared. Such rough people are being described by the proverb that ‘the joy of the rhino is to eat langale.’

The proverb teaches people to stop greediness in terms of eating habits and leadership. This will help them to have good relationship with other people in the society.
