KISWAHILI: KICHWA NDIO UFALME WA MWILI.

Chanzo cha msemo huu chaangalia kichwa. Kichwa ndicho kiushikiliacho mwili, kwa sababu chenyewe ndicho kitambulisho cha mtu fulani, au kitu fulani. Mtu akitaka kumfahamu mtu fulani, au kukifahamu kitu fulani, basi mtu huyo huangalia kichwani na ndipo hufahamu vizuri. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘kichwa ndicho ufalme wa mwili.’

Msemo huu hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye ni kiongozi mzuri katika familia yake. Mtu huyo anafahamu kuwalea katika maadili mema watu wake kwa kuishi maisha yenye umoja wa kusaidiana vizuri katika utekelezaji wa majukumu yao. Yeye ni mfano mzuri wa kuigwa na wenzake katika kuishi kwa upendo na watu wake. Mtu huyo hufanana na kichwa kinavyouongoza mwili, kwa sababu naye huiongoza vizuri familia yake. Huongeza bidii ya kuwafundisha watu wake namna ya kuwaongoza vizuri wenzao. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba ‘kichwa ndicho ufalme wa mwili.’

Msemo huu hufundisha watu  kuwa viongozi wema wa familia zao. Viongozi hao ni wale wawezao kuwafundisha watu wao upendo wa kusaidiana katika utekelezaji wa majukumu yao, ili waweze kupata mafanikio mengi maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: IT IS THE HEAD THAT IS THE KINGDOM OF THE BODY.

The origin of this saying is a head. A head is what holds the body, because it’s somebody’s or something’s identity. When someone wants to know someone or something, they look at the head; that is when they know better. That is why people say, ‘It is the head that is the kingdom of the body.’

The saying is used comparatively to refer to someone who is a good leader in his/her family. That person knows how to nurture his people in line with good morals such is living in unity that enables cooperation in fulfillment of responsibilities of the people involved. She/he is a role model for loving other people in life. The person is like a head that controls the body, because he/she, too, controls his/her family well. He/she puts more effort to educate his/her people on how to best guide their peers. That is why people say, ‘It is the head that is the kingdom of the body.’

The saying teaches people about being good leaders of their families. These leaders are those who can teach their people to love and help each other in executing their responsibilities, so that they can achieve more in their lives.

(John 15: 1-5; Ephesians 5: 21-25).
