KISWAHILI: KILICHOKO TUMBONI HAKIAZIMISHWI.
Alikuwepo mtu aliyekuwa na safari ya kwenda kwa ndugu zake. Mtu huyo, alienda kuazima chakula. Alipofika huko alisema, “naazima chakula ndugu zangu.” Wao walimjibu, “tumemaliza kukila chakula chote.” Ndiyo maana watu walisema, “kilichoko tumboni hakiazimishwi.”
Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwasaidia wenzake kwa kuwaambia ukweli, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, huuongea ukweli huo anapowasaidia watu wenye matatizo, ili waweze kupata utatuzi wa kweli wa matatizo hayo. Yeye huwafundisha watu wake njia za kuwasaidia wenzao kwa kuuongea na kuuishi ukweli huo, maishani mwao.
Mtu huyo, hufanana na watu wale waliomwambia ukweli mgeni wao, kwa sababu naye huwasaida watu kwa kuwaambia ukweli, katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana huwaambia watu kwamba, “kilichoko tumboni hakiazimishwi.”
Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwasaidia wenzao, kwa kuwaambia ukweli na kuushi vizuri, katika maisha yao, ili waweze kuyamaliza haraka matatizo yao.
ENGLISH: WHAT IS IN THE STOMACH IS NOT BORROWED.
There was a man who was on a journey to his relatives. He went to borrow food. When he arrived, he said, “I am borrowing food, my brothers.” They replied, “We have finished eating all the food.” That is why people say “what is in the stomach is not borrowed.”
This proverb is compared to a person who helps others by telling them the truth in life. Such person speaks the truth when he helps those who have problems, so that they can find real solutions to them. He/she teaches his/her people various ways of helping others by speaking and living according to truth.
This person is like those people who told the truth to their stranger, because he/she also helps people by telling them the truth in life. That is why he/she tells people that “what is in the stomach is not borrowed.”
This proverb imparts in people an idea on how to help others, by telling them the truth and living it, in their lives, so that they can quickly solve their problems.
