KISWAHILI: MJANJA NA MJANJA.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo chaangalia maisha ya watu ambao ni wajanja wote. Watu hao, huishi maisha ya kila mmoja kujikudai kufahamu kila kitu, kupita ng’wenzake. Ndiyo maana watu huwaita watu hao kwamba ni ‘mjanja na mjanja.’

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu ambao hawawezi kuishi kwa pamoja. Watu hao hawaelewani kwa sababu ya ujanja wao wa kila mmoja kumdharau mwenzake. Tabia hiyo huwapelekea kushindwa kuishi kwa pamoja. Ndiyo maana watu huwaita watu hao, kwamba ni ‘mjanja na mjanja.’

Methali hiyo hufundisha watu, juu ya kuacha ujanja wa kuwadharau wenzao, ili waweze kuelewana vizuri na wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: CLEVER AND CLEVER.

The source of this saying is two clever people who happen to be together sometimes. These two individuals happen to compete for knowledge; each one of them claiming to know better than the other.

This saying can be compared to people who cannot live together. Such people do not understand each other because of their individual ability that makes them despise each other. This behaviour leads to failure to live together. That’s why people can describe them using the saying that ‘clever and clever.’

The proverb teaches people about giving up the habit of belittling peers. People should respect individual abilities in order to create a ground for good understanding among members of the society.

Galatians 3: 1-5.
