KISWAHILI: FAHARI AKISHINDWA NA FAHARI NG’WINGINE HUSONONEKA.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chatokea kwenye kusononeka kwa fahari aliyeshindwa na fahari mwenzake kwenye kundi. Lakini basi, akizidiwa na fahari mwenzake, husononeka sana. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘fahari akishindwa na fahari mwingine husononeka.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye alikuwa kiongozi kablya hajafukuzwa. Mtu huyo alishindwa na mwenzake kwenye uchaguzi akaingia mwingine kwenye nafari yake.

Kwa hiyo basi, yeye naye husononeka kama yule fahari aliyeshindwa. Fahari huyo hukosa Baraka au furaha maishani mwake, kwa sababu pengine aliwatendea mabaya wenzake alipokuwa kiongozi. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘fahari akishindwa na fahari mwingine husononeka.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuwatendea mema watu wanaowaongoza, ili wakiacha kazi hiyo ya uonngozi, waweze kuishi kwa furaha na watu waliowaongaza.

ENGLISH: A DEFEATED BULL BECOMES SAD.

The source of the above proverb is derived from a failed and frustration bull. When the bull is defeated by its fellow, it becomes very depressed. That is why people can say ‘a defeated bull becomes sad’ to communicate the sad feelings the bull can feel for being defeated in the challenge.

The proverb can be compared to a person who was a leader before before being dismissed. Such a person was taken out of power through ballot and his/her position was replaced by someone else.  The defeated leader will always feel uncomfortable to go back to the people he/she used to lead when in power.

The proverb teaches people to respect others, especially in leadership. They have to respect their subordinates so that when they come out of power they can be well accepted in the society.

Luke 15: 13-16.

Daniel 4: 30-33.
