KISWAHILI: KILIWACHO NA TONGE.

Chanzo cha msemo huo, chaangalia kuliwa kwa mfugo na Tonge. Mfugo huo, ukifa peke yake unaliwa kwa sababu wenyewe ni nyama kama vile: Ng’ombe, Mbuzi, na kondoo. Hicho ni chakula ambacho haiwezekani kukitupa.

Tonge ni ugali unaoviringishwa na mhusika ambaye huichovya tonge hiyo, kwenye mchuzi na kula pamoja na nyama. Ndiyo maana watu hukiita, ‘kiliwacho na tonge.’

Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule anayefahamu kuwatuliwa watu wale ambao mifugo yao wamekufa. Mtu huyo, anaelewa kwamba, mifugo hao, hula majani ambayo huinenepesha miili yao mpaga kufikia hatua ya kuliwa. Hivyo basi, hata wakifa bila ya mwenye mali huridhia, wataliwa kama nyama, kwa sababu huwa hazitupwi.

Mtu huyo, huwafariji wamiliki hao wa mifugo, kwa kuwaelezea juu ya uwezekano walio nao wa kuwapata  mifugo wengine. Hivyo, wanatakiwa kujipa moyo kwa kula nyama za mifugo hao, kwa sababu hicho ni kile ‘kiliwacho na tonge.’

Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuelewa namna ya kuwatuliza watu walipoteza mali zao, ili wasihuzunike kupita kiasi, badala yake, wapate nguvu za kutafuta mali zingine, katika maisha yao.

ENGLISH: THAT WHICH IS EATEN WITH A LUMP OF UGALI.

The source of this saying is eating animal meat. When an animal dies, its meat can be eaten by human beings because animals such as cows, goats and sheep are used as side dish. Since animals are used as side dish, when one eats ugali he/she has to dip his/her lump of ugali in the meat sauce and eat it. To describe this scenario, people came with a saying that ‘that which is eaten with a lump of ugali.’

This saying can be compared to a person who knows how to calm down people who have lost their animals maybe because of death. He/she makes people become aware that even if these animals die without the consent of the owner they can be used as side dish. Therefore, such a person becomes a source of comfort to others who have lost their animals.

The saying teaches people about understanding how to relieve people who have lost their possessions.

Isaiah 22:13.
