KISWAHILI: MGENI HULA KUBWA.

Chanzo cha msemo huu chaangalia mtu ambaye ni mgeni wa familia fulani. Mgeni huyo huandaliwa kitoweo kwa kuchinjiwa mfugo mkubwa kwa lengo la kumkirimu, kwa sababu yeye ni mgeni wa heshima kwao. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘mgeni hula kubwa.’

Msemo huu hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule anayefahamu vizuri namna ya kuwapokea wageni kwenye familia yake. Mtu huyo, ni mkarimu anayezifahamu baraka ambazo huletwa na wageni kwenye familia iliyowakaribisha. Yeye huwatukirimu vizuri wageni wake kwa kuwaandalia chakula kizuri, kwa sababu wao ni watu wa heshima kwake. Huwafundisha pia wenzake namna ya kuwakirimu wageni. Ndiyo maana yeye huwaambia watu kwamba, ‘mgeni hula kubwa.’

Msemo huu hufundisha watu  kuelewa namna ya kuwkirimu vizuri na kuwatunza wageni wao kwa kuwapatia chakula kizuri, ili waweze kupata baraka za kuishi kwa amani na wenzao maishani mwao.
