KISWAHILI: KITENDAWILI – TEGA.

MAMA YAKE KAMBAKAMBA WATOTO MVIRINGO – TIKITI MAJI.

Chanzo cha kitendawili hicho, chaangalia shina la tikiti maji na matunda yake. Shina hilo la tikiti maji huwa ni kamba kamba ambazo hutanda zikiwa pamoja na mshina mengine yanayotanda kwa kulanda landa. Lakini basi, shina hilo huzaa matunda ya mviringo, ambayo huwa makubwa, mengi na matamu sana. Ndiyo maana watu huhadithiana kwamba, ‘mama yake kambakamba watoto mviringo – tikiti maji.’

Kitendawili hicho, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwakuza kwa kuwalea vizuri watoto wake. Mtu huyo, huwafundisha kushika tabia njema watoto wake hao, ambao hukua wakiwa wanafahamu kufanya kazi na kuishi vizuri na watu wa kijijini kwao.

Yeye hufanana na shina hilo la tikiti maji, kwa sababu naye ana watoto wambao huwakuza kwa kuwapatia malezi mema. Watoto hao, huishika na kuishi tabia hiyo njema, hali ambao huwawezesha kuwa wazuri, kama tikiti maji zilivyo tamu kwa walaji wake. Ndiyo maana watu huhadithiana kwamba, ‘mama yake kambakamba watoto mviringo – tikiti maji.’

Kitendawili hicho, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwakuza kwa kuwapatia malezi mema watoto wao, katika maisha yao, ili waweze kuyatimiza vizuri majukumu yao, na kuishi kwa amani na wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: I HAVE A RIDDLE – LET IT COME.

IT’S MOTHER IS JUST PIECES OF THREADS BUT HER CHILDREN ARE ROUNDISH IN SHAPE – WATERMELON.

The source of this riddle is a watermelon and its stem. The stem of water melon always appears like pieces of strings. These strings can be scattered around but they have one source; stem. Despite its appearance, being pieces of strings, it produces water melon, a fruit that is roundish in shape, big and sweet as well. That is why people came with this riddle ‘its mother is just pieces of threads but her children are roundish in shape – watermelon’ to communicate the relationship between watermelon and its stem.

This riddle can be compared to a person who takes care of his/her children. This person teaches his/her children on how to behave and live well with the people in their societies. This person is likened to a stem of watermelon that takes good care of its fruits despite its condition of being just pieces of threads. Its fruits are big and sweet enough to attract consumers. All these good attributes of the water melon fruit are associated with good parenting of its stem.

This riddle teaches people about nurturing children by providing them with good care. This will enable them to be acceptable members of the society.

Psalm 127: 3-5, Psalm 128: 3, Job 5:25.
