KISWAHILI: UKIMWONA NYANI AMEZEEKA ELEWA KAKWEPA MISHALE MINGI.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo, chaangalia mnyama anayeitwa Nyani. Nyani ni mnyama ambaye ni mharibifu wa mashamba ya watu kwa kula mazao yao. Hivyo ni kwa sababu hiyo, mnyama huyo huwa anawindwa na watu hao kila wakati ili wamuue. Kwa hiyo basi, huwa ni vigumu kwa nyani huyo kuwa mzima mpaga kuzeeka. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, “ukumwona nyani amezeeka elewa kakwepa mishale mingi.”

Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule aliyeishi miaka mingi duniani mpaka akafikia umri wa uzee. Mtu huyo, huwa amepitia magumu mengi maishani mwake kwa sababu kutokea kuzaliwa kwake hadi kukua na kuufikia uzee, ni muda mrefu wa kukumbana na shida nyingi. Yeye huwa ameyatatua matatizo mengi na pia kuyavulimilia mengi, katika maisha yake.

Mtu huyo, hufanana na yule nyani aliyekwepa mishale mingi mpaka akafikia umri wa uzee, kwa sababu naye ameyapitia matatizo mengi, maishani mwake. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia kwamba, “ukumwona nyani amezeeka elewa kakwepa mishale mingi.”

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kusaidiana vizuri katika kuyatatua matatizo yao, ili waweze kuishi salama mpaga waufikie umri wao wa uzee, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: IF YOU SEE AN OLD MONKEY UNDERSTAND HE ESCAPED MANY ARROWS.

This proverb looks at an animal which is called Monkey. Monkeys are animals which destroy people’s farms by eating their produce. That is why they are always hunted by people who want to kill them. Therefore, it is difficult for them to reach old age. That is why people say that, “if you see an old monkey understand he escaped many arrows.”

This proverb is equated to a man who lived many years on earth until he reached old age. This person, has experienced many hardships in his life because from birth to adulthood, is a long way to go. He has solved many problems and also endured many of them, in his life.

This man is like the monkey that avoided many arrows until he reached old age, because he too has gone through many hardships, in his life. That is why people say to him that, “if you see an old monkey understand he escaped many arrows.”

This proverb teaches people on how to help each other better in solving their problems, so that they can live safely until they reach their old age, in their lifetime.
