KISWAHILI: MAJIKO MENGI NI YA KUVUTIA SIGARA LAKINI LILILOFANYA NG’OMBE ACHINJWE NI MOJA TU.

Jiko ni chombo kile ambacho huwa na moto unaoweza kufanyia kazi mbalimbali. Hivyo basi, wavuta sigara huweza kuutumia moto huo ambao huwa wanauwasha kwa lengo la kuvutia sigara. Moto huo pia unaweza kutumika kwa kupikia au kuchomea nyama ya ng’ombe aliyechingwa.

Lakini yakiwepo majiko mengi ya wavutia sigara, jiko litakalotumika kuipikia nyama hiyo ni lile litakalo washwa kwa ajili ya ng’ombe huo. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, “majiko mengi ni ya kuvutia sigara lakini lilifanya ng’ombe achinjwe ni moja tu.

Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hujidai kuwa wa maana kuliko wenzake, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, huyatekeleza majukumu yake kwa kujigamba ili watu wanaomuona wamsifie, kwa sababu ya kujifikiria kwake kuwa ni wa maana kuliko wenzake anaoishi nao, katika utekelezaji wa majukumu hayo. Yeye huwa hawaamini wenzake kiasi cha kutosha kuwaachia kazi zake, kwa sababu ya tabia yake ya kuwadharau wenzake hao, wakati wanao uwezo wa kufanya kazi kama yeye.

Mtu huo hufanana na majiko ya kuvutia sigara, kwa sababu naye hujifikiria kuwa ni wa maana zaidi kuliko wenzake, katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia kwamba, “majiko mengi ni ya kuvutia sigara, lakini lilifanya ng’ombe achinjwe ni moja tu.”

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuachana na tabia za kujifikiria kuwa wao ni wa maana zaidi kuliko wenzao, katika maisha yao, ili waweze kuwa na ushirikiano wa kuyatekeleza vizuri majukumu yao, kwa ajili ya kuziendeleza vizuri familia zao, maishani mwao.

cow---

meat--

ENGLISH: MANY KITCHENS ARE FOR SMOKING CIGARETTES BUT THE ONE THAT MAKES  A  COW BE SLAUGHTERED IS ONLY ONE.

A kitchen is a vessel that has a fire which can perform various functions. Thus, smokers may be able to use the fire, which they kindle, for the purpose of attracting smokers. The fire can also be used to cook or burn roasted beef.

But if there are many smokers’ kitchens, the kitchen that will be used to cook the meat is the one that has been lit for the cow. That is why people say, “Many kitchens are for smoking cigarettes but the one that makes a cow be slaughtered is only one.”

This proverb is compared to a person who claims to be more important than others in life. This person carries out duties with pride so that the people who see him/her will praise him/her because of considering oneself that is more important than others in that society. He/she does not trust others enough to give to them jobs, because of a tendency to despise them while they are capable of working like him.

This person is like the smokers’ kitchens, because he/she also thinks that he/she is more important than others in life. That is why people say to him/her, “Many kitchens are for smoking cigarettes but the one that makes a cow be slaughtered is only one.”

This proverb instills in people an idea of stopping habits of considering themselves as more important than others in their socieites, so that they can co-operate in fulfilling their daily responsibilities, for the betterment of their families.
