KISWAHILI: WANAHANGAIKA NA MABAKI.

Chanzo cha msemo huo, chaangalia mabaki ya mazao ya chakula shambani. Mabaki hayo, ni kalanga ambazo hubakia baada ya mkulima kuzivuna. Zenyewe huwa hazibaki nyingi, kwa sababu nyingi huwa zimevunwa na wenyewe shamba hilo. Ndiyo maana mwenye shamba hilo, huwaambia watu kwamba, ‘wanahangaikia mabaki.’

Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hujitapa na kujigamba kwa watu, kwa sababu ya utajiri wake. Mtu huyo, hata akipata kesi, huweza kuuza hata ng’ombe mmoja tu, akapata hela ya kuimaliza kesi yake hiyo.

Yeye huwaambia watu kwamba, waanahangaika na mabaki tu, mzigo mkubwa umo ndani, ambao haujaguswa hata kidogo. Yeye anaweza hata kunywa pombe, na kuwaambia wenye pombe hiyo kwamba, wanahangaikia mabaki tu, kwa sababu ya wingi wa mali zake hizo. Ndiyo maana yeye huwaambia watu kwamba, ‘wanahangaikia mabaki,’ mali ameziweka ndani kwake.

Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia ya kujivunia utajiri, ili waweze kuishi vizuri na wenzao, katika maisha yao. Yafaa waelewe kwamba, siyo vizuri kutambia kitu chochote, kwa sababu kitu hicho chaweza kuwaishia wakati wowote.

ENGLISH: THEY ARE EXCITED BY THE LEFT-OVERS.

The source of this saying is the left-overs of food or crops. These left-overs can be remains of food after someone has eaten to his/her satisfaction. It can also mean crops left behind after the owner of the farm has harvested and then someone else comes to gather the remains of crops. Such people are being described using the saying that ‘they are excited by the left-overs.’

The saying can be compared to a person who praises himself/herself for being rich. Such a person can even be engaged in a criminal case and bribe people to end the case. These kinds of people can openly tell others that he/she lives a kind of life that others cannot afford rather end up eating or drinking his/her left-overs. In return, the poor can be happy for having the lef-overs because that is only what they can afford.

The saying teaches people about giving up the pride of wealth so that they can live better with others in the society.
