KISWAHILI: MLALA MASHAMBANI.

Chanzo cha msemo huo chaangalia ndege mdogo anayeitwa “Dede.” Ndege huyo huitwa hivyo kwa sababu hutafuta pamba kwenye mashamba za kutengenezea kiota chake. Yeye huchukua pamba hiyo na kujengea kiota chake ndani ya shamba hilo au kwenye shamba jingine. Ndiyo maana watu humuita kwamba ni “mlala mashambani.”

Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hujibidisha kufanya kazi zake mpaka anapata mali za kujengea nyumba yake. Mtu huyo, huzifanya kazi zake vizuri ambazo ni pamoja na kulima mashamba ya kumwezesha kuzipata hizo mali za kujengea nyumba yake hiyo. Yeye huweza kupata mali hizo kwa sababu ya kujibidisha kwake katika kuyatekeleza majukumu yake.

Mtu huyo hufanana na yule ndege aliyejibisha kufanya kazi mpaka akajenga kiota chake mashambani, kwa sababu naye hujibidisha kufanya kazi zake mpaka anapata mali za kujengea nyumba, maishani mwake. Ndiyo maana watu humuita kwamba ni “mlala mashambani.”

Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kila mmoja kuwa na akili ya kujijengea nyumba ya kuishi humo kupitia njia mbali zikiwemo zile za kulima, ili aweze kuishi vizuri, katika maisha yake.

ENGLISH: A SLEEPER IN THE FIELD.

The source of this saying refers to a small bird which is called “Dede.” Such bird is so named because it searches for cotton in the fields for making its nest. It takes the cotton and builds its nest in the field or in another field. That is why people call it a “sleeper in the fields.”

This saying is compared to a person who works hard enough to earn a living. This man does his job well, which includes cultivating land to enable him acquire the property for building his house. He manages to obtain these assets because of his diligence in carrying out his responsibilities.

This man is like the bird that worked hard enough to build a nest in the field, because he also worked hard enough to get a job that enables him to build a house for living in it. That is why people call him a “sleeper in the fields.”

This saying instills in people an idea on each one to have the mind for building a house to live in through various means including farming, so that he/she can live well in his life.
