KITENDAWILI – TEGA.

KADANDA KADANDA HAKAKWEWI: – UNYASI.

Chanzo cha kitendawili hicho, chaangalia nguvu za unyasi. Unyasi huo, huwa haina nguvu, kwa sababu ya ulaini wake. Wenyewe hata ulefuke kiasi gani, hauwezi kupata uimara wa kumwezesha mtu kuukwea. Ndiyo maana watu huhadithiana kwamba, ‘kadanda kadanda hakakwewi:- unyasi.’

Kitendawili hicho, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hulazimisha watu kufanya kazi ambazo hawana uwezo nazo.  Mtu huyo, huweza hata kuwapa watoto kazi ambayo inatakiwa kufanywa na watu wazima.

Yeye hufanana na kitendo cha mtu kulazimisha kukwea unyasi, ambao hauna nguvu za kumbeba, kwa sababu naye huwalazimisha watu kufanya kazi ambazo hawana uwezo wa kuzitekeleza. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia mtu huyo, kwa huhadithiana kwamba, ‘kadanda kadanda hakakwewi:- unyasi.’

Kitendawili hicho, hufundisha watu juu ya kufanya kazi zile ambazo wanauwezo nazo, na kuacha tabia ya kuwapatia watu wao kazi zilizowazidi nguvu, ili waweze kuishi vizuri na wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: I HAVE RIDDLE – LET IT COME.

KADANDA KADANDA IS NOT CLIMBED- GRASS.

The source of this riddle is the strength of grass. The grass is always weak for a person to climb. However much one can struggle, he/she cannot succeed to climb grass. To justify this impossibility, people came with the riddle ‘kadanda kadanda is not climbed – grass.’

This riddle can be compared to a person who forces people to perform tasks that they are not capable of. The person may give children the work that even adults cannot manage to do it. Such a person can be likened to a person who forces to climb grass that cannot carry a person.

This riddle teaches people about doing works that they are capable of. They should avoid giving people tasks which they cannot manage. In so doing, they will be able to have respect and harmony with other people in a given society.
