KISWAHILI: HUWA ZINAKWENDA NA MWENYEWE.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo, chaangalia utunzaji wa mali ambazo tajiri mmoja, aliwaachia watu fulani ili wazitunze. Watu hao walikuwa hawafahamu kuzitunza vizuri mali hizo.

Kwa vile mali hizo, zilikuwa mifugo, ambao walikuwa wanafahamu kwa tajiri yule walikotoka, walianza kurudi mmoja mmoja. Mwishowe mifugo wote walirudi nyumbani kwa yule tajiri. Ndiyo maana watu walipoelewa hivyo, walisema kwamba, ‘huwa zinakwenda na mwenyewe.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye ni tajiri aliyefariki, na kuwaachia mali zake watu walioshindwa kuitunza. Watu hao walishindwa kuitunza mali hiyo, mpaka ikawaishia yote, kwa sababu hawakuifahamu namna aliyokuwa akiitumia tajiri huyo katika kuitunza mali yake hiyo. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘huwa zinakwenda na mwenyewe.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu juu ya kuelewa namna ya kuitunza mali waliyo nayo, ili iweze kuwasaidia vizuri, katika maisha yao.

ENGLISH: THEY GO WITH THE OWNER.

The source of the saying comes from the way one can keep his/her worth. One rich person died, leaving his/her worth to move on in the hands of inheritors. Such inheritors failed to understand how to take care of them as a result, some of the properties, especially animals, started leaving to the place where the former owner used to stay. And, finally, all the properties returned back to the home of the former owner.

The saying can be compared to a rich man who dies laving behind properties to be taken care of by others, unfortunately, without telling them how to take good care of them. The failure to tell them what to do in taking care of them results into all properties disappearing to follow the former owner. It might mean also death of richness in the same way the owner died. To describe such a scenario, people can use the saying that ‘they go with the owner.’

The saying teaches people about understanding how to take care of their belongings and imparting knowledge to other relatives on how to care those belongings. In so doing, people will be ensuring continuity of their properties even after the death of the former owner. This will enable families to have good life through proper inheritance of properties.
