MIGUU INAWASHA WAGENI WAKO NJIANI.

Chanzo cha msemo huo, chaangalia uwashaji wa miguu na upataji wa wageni katika familia. Uwashaji huo wa miguu, ulitumika kama ishara ya uwepo wa watu wanaotembea kwenda ugenini. Mtu yule ambaye miguu yake iliwasha, ndiye atakayepata wageni kwenye familia yake. Ndiyo maana mtu huyo husema kwamba, ‘miguu inawasha wageni wako njiani.’

Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye anaukarimu wa kuwakarisha wageni kwenye familia yake. Mtu huyo, ana huruma ya kuwasaidia watu hao, kwa kuwaandalia chakula kizuri, na kuwapatia sehemu nzuri ya kulala, wageni wake hao.

Yeye anafahamu kwamba wageni hao, huleta baraka katika familia waliyoitembelea. Mtu huyo, huombea kutembelewa na wageni katika familia yake ili aweze kuzipata baraka hizo kwenye familia yake, maishani mwake. Ndiyo maana yeye husema kwamba, ‘miguu inawasha wageni wako njiani.’

Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na ukarimu wa kuwakaribisha wageni katika familia zao, ili waweze kupata baraka za kuishi kwa amani na wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: THE FEET ARE ITCHING; GUESTS ARE ON THE WAY COMING.

The source of this saying is the itching of feet and the coming of guests in one’s family. In the past, people believed that when one of the family members feels the itching of his/her feet there is a possibility of receiving guests in that particular family. This is why people came with this saying that ‘the feet are itching; guests are on the way coming’ to justify the connection between itching of feet and coming of guests.

The saying can be compared to a person who is kind enough to his/her guests. This person enjoys having guests in his/her family. He/she can provide them with good food, shelter and whatever is within his/her reach in order to entertain his/her guests. To him/her, guests are a sign of blessing to his/her family and therefore, he/she can suffer for not having visitors in his/her family.

The saying teaches people about generosity by welcoming guests in one’s family. In so doing, one’s family will be able to get blessings that will make them always live in harmony with other people.
