KISWAHILI: CHUMA HULA WENZAKE.

Chanzo cha msemo huo chaangalia chuma na ulaji wake. Chuma hicho ni kitu kilicho kigumu ambacho kinauwezo wa kula wenzake, chenyewe kikabaki kama kilivyo. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘chuma hula wenzake.’

Msemo huo hulinganishwa kwa mtu ambaye hupenda kula kwa wenzake, lakini kwake hataki wenzake hao wale kwake. Mtu huyo hapendi kuwakaribisha wenzake kula chakula chake nyumbani kwake, kwa sababu ya kuogopa kukimaliza chakula chake hicho. Watu wale ambao wanaifahamu tabia yake hiyo, humwambia kwamba, ‘chuma hula wenzake.’

Msemo huo hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha uchoyo maishani mwao, ili waweze kuwatendea wenzao yale ambayo wao wenyewe, hupenda kutendewa na wao.

ENGLISH: IRON EATS ITS FELLOWS.

The origin of the above saying is how metals survive by feeding on fellow metals. There are some metals that are hard enough and they are capable of feeding on other metals. In describing such metals people can say ‘iron eats its fellows.’

The saying can be compared to a person who likes eating food from others but doesn’t entertain others to eat his/her food. Such a person is likely to deny others from visiting his/her home for fear of eating his/her food. People of this behaviour are being warned by telling them that ‘Iron eats its fellows.’

The saying teaches people to stop being selfish in their lives rather they need to treat others in a way that they would themselves want to be treated.
