KISWAHILI: WA MABALE – WANYAMA.

Chanzo cha msemo huo, chatokea kwenye uitaji wa wafalme. Hapo zamani, wafalme walikuwa wakiitwa majina kwa kuonesha namna walivyopewa ufalme wao, kwa sababu walishinda kwa kunyoshewa mikono na watu. Ndiyo maana watu hao waliwaita, ‘wa mabale – wa nyama.’

Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwa anaishi vizuri na viongozi wake, maishani mwake. Mtu huyo, huyatekeleza upesi majukumu anayopewa na viongozi wake hao, kwa sababu ya utii na heshima aliyo nayo kwao, viongozi wake hao.

Yeye huwaonesha wenzake mfano mwema wa kuishi kwa amani na viongozi wao, kwa kuyatekeleza vizuri majukumu wanayopewa na viongozi hao. Maisha yake, huwafundisha wenzake namna ya kuwaheshimu vizuri viongozi wao. Ndiyo maana yeye huwaita viongozi wake, kwamba, ‘wa mabale – wa nyama.’

Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa wasikivu kwa viongozi wao wanapowatuma kwenda kufanya kazi fulani, ili waweze kuishi kwa amani na wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: HE WHO HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE PEOPLE IS THE ONE TO EAT MEAT.

The source of this saying is the appointment of the chief. In the past, chief were obtained by relying on the number of people who proposes him. The one who receives a big number of votes would be declared the chief of a certain place. This is why people came with this saying that ‘he who has been approved by the people is the one to eat meat’ to communicate how the chief comes into power after having a big number of votes.

This saying can be compared to a person who lives well with his/her leaders in his/her life. This person can fulfill his/her responsibilities given to him/her by his/her leaders because of the obedience and respect he/she has for others. Such a person sets a good example for others to live in harmony with their leaders by fulfilling their responsibilities. His/her life teaches colleagues how to respect leaders.

The saying teaches people about being sensitive to their leaders. This can help people to have good relationship with others thus ensuring peace and harmony in the society.
