KISWAHILI: KITENDAWILI –  TEGA: NINA MWANANGU NIKIMKATA HAKATIKI – MAJI

Chanzo cha kitendawili hiki chaangalia maji. Maji hutumika kwa namna mbalimbali kama vile kunywa, kupikia, kujengea nyumba, kuoga, na kufulia nguo na kuoshea vyombo. Yenyewe hata kama mtu akiyakata hayakatiki. Ndiyo maana watu hutegeana kitendawili kwamba ‘nina mwanangu nikimkata hakatiki’ na kujibu, ‘Maji.’

Kitendawili hiki hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule mwenye unyenyekevu wa kukubali kufundishwa kitu kipya, hata na mtu yule ambaye ni mdogo kwake. Mtu huyo anafahamu kwamba elimu haina mwisho. Yeye hufanana na maji yanayotumika kufanyia kazi mbalimbali, kwa sababu naye hukubali kufundishwa kile asichokifahamu, hata na mtu yule aliye mdogo kwake. Mtu huyo huutumia unyenyekevu wake kufanya kazi pamoja na wenzake, ili waweze kupata mafanikio mengi zaidi maishani mwao. Ndiyo maana watu hutegeana kitendawili kwamba ‘nina mwanangu nikimkata hakatiki’ na kujibu, ‘Maji.’

Kitendawili hiki hufundisha watu kuwa na unyenyekevu wa kukubali kufundishwa na wenzao kile wasichokijua, ili waweze kusaidiana vizuri katika kuyatekeleza majukumu yawezayo kuwapatia mafanikio mengi maishani mwao.

The person realizes that human beings never stop learing. He/she is like water that is used to do a variety of tasks, because he, too, is willing to be taught what he does not know, even by a person who younger or of lesser status than him/her. The person uses his/her humility to work together with others, so that they can achieve notable success in their lives.
