KISWAHILI: MWAZIMA FAHALI HAKAI.
Alikuwepo mtu aliyeenda kuazima fahali kwa jirani yake. Alipofika kwenye familia hiyo, alikaa na kuanza kuongelea mambo mengine tu badala ya kuitaja kwanza shida yake. Mwishowe akaja mtu mwingine aliyekuwa na shida hiyo akasema, “naazima fahali kwenye familia hii.” Mwenye fahali alimwambia, “swaga ile pale.”
Naye mtu aliyeanza kufika pale akaomba, “nami nimekuja kuazima fahali.” Tajiri akamjibu, “umewahiwa basi, kwa vile umechelewa kuomba.” Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, “mwazima fahali hakai.”
Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule anayetafuta msaada kwa mwenzake, kwa kufika na kuisema shida yake bila kukawia, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, hacheleweshi na mambo mengine anapoamua kutelekeza jambo fulani, kwa sababu anaelewa hasara ya kuwahiwa na wenzake kupata mafanikio. Yeye hupata mafanikio mengi, kwa sababu ya kujali jambo moja kwa wakati mmoja, bila kukaa kwanza, maishani mwake.
Mtu huyo, hufanana na mwazima fahali aliyempata kwa kufika na kutaja shida yake bila kukawia, kwa sababu naye hufuatilia kazi yake mpaka anaimaliza vizuri. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia kwamba, “mwazima fahali hakai.”
Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kujali kazi zao kwa kuzifuatilia mpaka mwisho, bila kupoteza muda wao kwenye kazi zingine, katika maisha yao, ili waweze kupata mafanikio mengi, maishani mwao.
ENGLISH: A BULL BORROWER DOES NOT SIT (A DETERMINED PERSON NEVER LOSES FOCUS).
There was a man who went to borrow a bull to his neighbor. When he reached that family, he sat down and started talking about other things instead of mentioning his problem first. Finally another person who had the same problem came and said, “I borrow a bull from this family.” The bull owner said to him, “you may take it is there.”
Then the first one to come there also requested, “I have come to borrow a bull.” The rich man replied, “You are late to say because of your staying first instead of requesting it.” That is why people say, “a bull borrower does not sit (a determined person never loses focus).”
This proverb is likened to a man who seeks help from his fellow man, by saying his problem without delay, in his life. This person does not delay by doing other things when he decides to do something, because he understands the disadvantages of being overtaken by his peers in gaining success. This man manages to get a lot of success, because he cares about one thing at a time, without staying in his life.
This man is like a bull borrower who expressed his problem to the bull owner after meeting him, because he also keeps track of his work until he finishes it well. That is why people say to him, “a bull borrower does not sit (a determined person never loses focus).”
This proverb teaches people on how to take care of their jobs by pursuing them to the end, without wasting their time on other careers in their lives, so that they can find more success in their lives.
