KISWAHILI: KONDOO WA FUKARA HAZAI.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo, chaangalia kutozaa kwa kondoo wa maskini. Kondoo huyo, ambaye ni wa fukara mwenye naye mmoja tu, hutegemewa kutumika kwenye kila shida, kama vile kununua chakula, na kuandaa mboga ya wageni. Yeye hutumiwa hata kabla hajazaa. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘kondoo wa fukara hazai.’

Methali huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hana vitu kama vile mali kwenye familia yake, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, hukumbwa na matatizo mengi sana maishani mwake, kwa sababu ya kukosa mali ya kumsaidia katika kuyatatua matatizo hayo.

Yeye hupata mali kidogo tu ambazo huzimaliza kwa muda mfupi, kama yule fukara atumiavyo kondoo wake hata kabla hajazaa, kwa sababu ya kusongwa na matatizo mengi kwenye familia yake. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘kondoo wa fukara hazai.’

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kujibidisha kutafuta mali kwa kufanya kazi zao kwa bidii kubwa, ili waweze kupata mali ya kuwaondolea matatizo, katika maisha yao. Yafaa watu hao, waache tabia ya kutegemea kitu kidogo walicho nacho.

ENGLISH: THE SHEEP OF THE POOR CANNOT REPRODUCE .

The source of this saying is the fertility of the poor’s sheep. The poor’s sheep is the only possession he/she has and he/she depends on it if he/she faces a problem such as shortage of food in his/her family. The poor’s sheep will end up being used before it multiplies. Therefore, whatever little he/she can have in life cannot multiply to make him/her a successful person. In such a context, people came with the saying that ‘The sheep of the poor cannot reproduce.’

The saying can be compared to a person who does not have anything in his/her family. This person can suffer for lacking something to support his/her life. Even the little resource he/she can manage to get can last only for few days.

This saying teaches people to work hard to get rich. They need to work hard and avoid giving up easily in their struggle.
