KISWAHILI: WAJUMBE WALA NA VILIVYOOZA.

Chanzo cha msemo huo chatokea kwenye maisha ya wajumbe wa vitongoji. Zamani walikuwepo viongozi waliojulikana kama wajumbe. Mtu akifika usiku kwenye kitongoji hicho, alilala kwa wajumbe hao. Watu wa aina mbalimbali walilala, hata na wale wenye ukoma walilala kwa wajumbe hao. Ndiyo ukawa msemo kwamba, ‘wajumbe wala na vilivyooza.’

Msemo huo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye habagui watu nyumbani kwake. Mtu huyo huwakaribisha wote na kuwatunza kwa kuwapatia chakula kizuri. Yeye hula na wazuri na wabaya pia. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘wajumbe wala na vilivyooza.’

Msemo huo hufundisha watu juu kuacha tabia za kubagua watu kwa sababu ya muonekano wao mbaya, ili waweze kuishi kwa amani wa wenzao maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: CHIEFS EAT WITH EVERYONE.

This saying has its origin in village where chiefs used to receive people of different calibers. These chiefs used to receive guests who visited them and they could eat together without considering their differences in terms of social classes. It included rich, poor and leper visitors. When this was happening, people could describe this scenario that ‘chiefs eat with everyone.’

The saying can be compared to someone who does not discriminate people in his/her home. Such people can welcome others and take care of them by providing them with all necessities for their stay in the compound.

The saying teaches people to stop discriminating others because of their appearance. In so doing, they will be able to live a decent life without quarreling with others.
