KISWAHILI: WATU TUKO TUMBILI ZA WAFALME.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo, chatokea kwenye uhamaji wa watu katika maisha yao, na urukiaji wa Tumbili kwenye miti. Uhamaji huo wa watu ni wa kutoka kwa Mfalme fulani kwenda kwa Mwingine. Wenyewe hulinganishwa na urukaji wa Tumbili kutoka mti mmoja hadi mwingine. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘watu tuko tumbili za wafalme.’

Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwasikiliza vizuri viongozi wake, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, anakubali kuongozwa na viongozi wake hao, kwa sababu ya upendo alio nao kwao, na kwa wenzake. Yeye huwatambua na kuwasikiliza viongozi wa kokote atakakohamia.

Mtu huyo, hufanana na Tumbili wanavyorukia mti mmoja hadi mwingine, kwa sababu naye, anakubali kuongozwa na kiongozi yeyote anayemkuta kule anakohamia katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana yeye huwaambia watu kwamba, ‘watu tuko tumbili za wafalme.’

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwaelewa na kuwasikiliza viongozi wao, katika maisha yao, ili waweze kuishi kwa amani na wenzao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: PEOPLE ARE LIKE KINGS’ MONKEYS.

The source of this saying is the migration of people from one authoritative unit or Kingdom to another. This kind of migration is compared with the way monkeys jump from one tree to another. This is why people came with the saying that ‘people are like kings’ monkeys’ to describe how people move from one kingdom to another and how they are forced to follow rules and regulations of that particular kingdom.

This saying can be compared to a person who listens well to his/her leaders in his/her life. This person tends to love his/her leaders. Like the monkey that jumps from one tree to another, this person tends to respect the rules and regulations of a given authoritative unit. Such a person teaches others about respect and obedience in life.

This proverb teaches people to understand and listen to their leaders in their lives. This can help to avoid quarrels in the society instead create peace and harmony among people in a given society.

Genesis 47:21, Ezekiel 12: 3.
