KISWAHILI: LENYE MAKOVU.

Chanzo cha msemo huu chaangalia kiumbe chenye makovu mwilini mwake. Makovu hayo ni madonda yaliyopona ambayo yalitokana na kiumbe hicho kuwa na nguvu za kutoshindwa na chochote. Kiumbe hicho kinaweza kufanya kazi nyingi mpaka kuzimaliza. Ndiyo maana watu hukiita ‘lenye makovu.’

Msemo huu hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye ni mwenye nguvu za kufanya kazi vizuri mpaka kuzimaliza. Mtu huyo hujibidisha kuzitekeleza kazi zake hizo kwa haraka hadi kuzikamilisha. Yeye hufanana na dude lenye makovu, kwa sababu naye ana nguvu za kumwezesha kujiletea mafanikio mengi katika maisha yake. Maisha yake hayo huwasaidia pia wenzake katika kuongeza bidii za kuyatekeleza vizuri majukumu yao. Ndiyo maana watu humwita kwamba yeye ni ‘lenye makovu.’

Msemo huo hufundisha watu kuongeza nguvu za kuyatekeleza kwa bidii kubwa na vizuri majukumu yao, ili waweze kuziendeleza vizuri familia zao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: HE WHO IS FULL OF SCARS.

The origin of this saying is a creature with scars on his body. These scars are the healing wounds that resulted from the creature having the power to be invincible. The creature can do many tasks to complete it. That is why people call it ‘the one with scars.’

The saying is used comparatively to refer to any person who has the power to do jobs well and complete it on time. The person undertakes to carry out and complete his/her tasks quickly. He/she is like a creature full of scars, because he also has the power to work bring about notable successes in his life. His own life also helps other to work harder  in fulfilling their roles. That is why people call him ‘he who is full of scars.’

The saying teaches people to maximize effort to carry out their hard work and responsibilities, so that they can better support their families.

(Exodus 2: 11-15; Judges 15: 11-16; 1Kings 11: 15-16).
