KISWAHILI: NENO JEMA HALIWAVUTII WENGI.

Methali hiyo, huangalia ugumu wa neno jema kupokelewa na watu, katika maisha yao. Alikuwepo mwalimu mmoja ambaye aliitisha mkutano wa wanakijiji ili awaeleze juu ya umuhimu wa kuwasomisha watoto wao. Walipofika kwenye mkutano huo, aliwaambia, “wapelekeni shule watoto wenu wakasome ili waweze kuja kuwasaidia kwenye siku za mbeleni.”

Mzee mmoja alijibu, “hatuwezi kuachisha kazi za kuchunga mifugo watoto wetu kwa sababu ya kusoma.” Mwalimu huyo alijibu, “kazi ya kusoma ni kubwa kuliko kuchunga mifugo, kwa sababu elimu hufundisha mengi, ambayo ni pamoja na namna ya kuipata mifugo hiyo, na njia za kuitunza vizuri.”

Mwalimu alipowaeleza hivyo, bhadhi yao hao wanakijiji walikubali kuwapeleka watoto wao shuleni. Watoto hao, walifaulu hadi wakafikia hatua ya kuwa viongozi wakubwa nchi yao.  Wanakijiji walipoona hivyo, wengi wao walianza kuwasomesha watoto wao. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, “neno jema haliwavutii wengi.”

Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huvumilia katika kuwafundisha watu wake ukweli wa kitu chema kitakachoweza kuwasaidia, hadi wanakielewa vizuri, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, anauelewa ugumu wa kupokelewa kwa kitu chema, kwa wale wanaokisikia kwa mara ya kwanza. Yeye huendelea kukirudia kitu hicho kwa watu hao, mpaka wanakielewa vizuri, kiasi cha kutosha kufaidika nacho, maishani mwao.

Mtu huyo, hufanana na yule mwalimu aliyewaelimisha wanakijiji wake juu ya kuwasomesha watoto wao, hadi wakamwelewa, kwa sababu naye huvulimia katika kuwaelimisha watu juu ya ukweli wa kitu chema kiwezacho kuwasaidia katika maisha yao. Ndiyo maana yeye huwaambia watu kwamba, “neno jema haliwavutii wengi.”

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwa na uvumilivu wa kutosha katika kuwaelimisha wenzao, juu ya kitu chema kiwezacho kuwasaidia, katika maisha yao, ili waweze kupata viongozi bora, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: THE GOOD WORD DOES NOT ATTRACT MANY.

This proverb looks at a difficulty of people to receive a good word in their lives. There was a teacher who convened a village meeting to explain about an importance of educating their children. When they arrived at the meeting, he told them, “Send your children to school so that they can come and help you in the future.”

An elder one replied, “We cannot stop our children from the work of herding because of studying.” The teacher replied, “The task of studying is bigger than that of herding livestock, because education teaches a lot, which includes how to get livestock, and how to take good care of them.”

When the teacher told them so, the villagers agreed to send their children to school. Their children succeeded until they reached the point of becoming leaders of their country. Seeing this, many of the villagers allowed their children to go to schools. That is why people say that “good word does not attract many.”

This proverb is likened to a man who perseveres in teaching his people the truth of something which is good that will help them, until they understand it well, in his life. This person understands a difficulty of receiving something which is good, to those who hear it for the first time. He keeps on repeating the same thing to them, until they understand it well enough to benefit from it in their lives.

This man is like the teacher who taught the villagers to educate their children by allowing them to go to school, until they understood him, because he also perseveres in educating people about the truth of something which is good that can help them in their lives. That is why he tells people that “the good word does not attract many.”

This proverb teaches people about being patient enough to educate others, on something which is good that can help them in their future lives, so that they can find good leaders in their societies.
