Chanzo cha methali hiyo, kilianzia kwenye ukamataji wa panzi wa mtu fulani. Mkamataji huyo wa panzi akimuona panzi huyo humunyemelea vizuri ndipo anamkamata. Lakini basi, mtu huyo akimkosa kumshika, panzi huyo huruka na wale panzi wanzake hupitiwa na yule mwenzao kwa kuruka pamoja naye. Ndiyo maana watu huwaita kwamba ni “panzi mpitiwa.”
Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hujiingiza kwenye mambo au maneno asiyoyafahamu vizuri katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, hukosana mara kwa mara na wenzake anaoishi nao kwa sababu ya kujiingiza kwake kwenye mambo hayo asiyoyaelewa. Yeye hujiaibisha mwenyewe hasa anapokosa maelezo ya kweli juu ya jambo aliloliunga mkono bila ya kulielewa kwanza.
Mtu huyo, hufanana na panzi wale walioruka kwa kupitiwa na mwenzao aliye nusulika kukamatwa na mkamataji wa panzi, kwa sababu naye hujiingiza kwenye mambo yale asiyoyafahamu vizuri maishani mwake. Ndiyo maana watu humuita mtu huyo kwamba, ni “panzi mpitiwa.”
Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia ya kufanya mambo wasiyoyalewa vizuri katika maisha yao, ili waweze kuishi kwa amani na wenzao na kupata maendeleo mengi. Wanatakiwa kufanya utafiti wa kuwawezesha kuzielewa vizuri kazi zao kabla ya kuzitekeleza ili waweze kupata mafanikio makubwa ya kuziendeleza vizuri familia zao.
Kosa la Adam una Eva.
Marko 9:42. “Kama mtu ye yote akimsababisha mmojawapo wa wadogo hawa wanaoniamini kutenda dhambi, ingekuwa afadhali mtu huyo afungiwe shingoni mwake jiwe kubwa la kusagia na kutoswa baharini.”
ENGLISH: THE MOB TAKEN GRASSHOPPER.
The origin of this proverb can be traced back to a catcher of grasshoppers. The person who catches grasshoppers walks slowly with an aim of catching them before they fly. But then, if this person misses one of them, he/she will miss even the others, because it will fly away and the other grasshoppers will be taken by their mate by flying together with it. That is why people call it the “the mob taken grasshopper.”
This proverb is compared to a person who supports things which he or she does not understand well in his or her life. This person, from time to time, enters into conflicts with his or her roommates because of his or her involvement in things which he or she does not understand. He becomes ashamed of himself especially when he lacks accurate information about what he supported without first understanding it.
This person resembles the grasshoppers which flew by being taken by the one that escaped death from grasshopper catcher, because he also supports things that he does not know well in his life. That is why people call him a “the mob taken grasshopper.”
This proverb teaches people to stop doing evil things in their lives, so that they can live in peace with each other and get more progress in their lives. They need to do research enough to enable them understand their work before implementing it so that they can achieve greater success for developing their families.
Adam’s fault is Eve.
Mark 9:42. “If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”
