KISWAHILI: ZA MWENYEWE HULIWA NA MWENYEWE.

Mwenye mali ni mtu anayefahamu jinsi alivyojitafutia mali hizo. Mtu huyo, huzitumia mali hizo kwa kuzila akiwa na uhuru kwa sababu ni haki yake kutumia mali zake kama apendavyo. Yeye huwakataza wale wanaomuonea wivu azitumiapo vizuri mali zake hizo, kwa sababu hawana haki ya kumzuia kuila atakavyo mali yake hiyo. Ndiyo maana huwaambia kwamba, “za mwenyewe huliwa na mwenyewe.”

Methali hiyo, hutumiwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwaonea wivu wale wanaokula mali zao. Mtu huyo, ana tabia ya kuwachukia watu wanaotumia mali zao hizo kama wapendavyo wenyewe, kwa sababu ya wivu wake huo, katika maisha yake. Yeye hujichelewesha bure kufanya kazi zake kwa sababu ya kuongelea wale wanaotumia mali zao kama wapendavyo, maishani mwao.

Mtu huyo, hufanana na wale waliomuonea wivu yule aliyekuwa akitumia mali yake kama apendavyo, kwa sababu naye huwaonea wivu matajiri wanaotumia utajiri wao kama watakavyo wao wenyewe, maishani mwao. Ndiyo maana huwaambia watu kwamba, “za mwenyewe huliwa na mwenyewe.”

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha tabia ya kuwaonea wivu watu wanaotumia mali zao kama wapendavyo, ili waweze kuutumia muda wao kwa kujibidisha kufanya kazi zao za kuwaletea mafanikio mengi, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: THE PROPERTY OF THE OWNER IS EATEN BY THE OWNER.

A property of owner is something which the one who has it knows how he or she sought it. This owner, in effect, uses it for eating freely because it is his right to spend his property as he/she likes. He/she forbids those who are jealous of him/her when he/she makes good use of it, because they have no right to stop him/her from eating it. That is why he tells them that “the property of the owner is eaten by the owner.”

This proverb is applied to a man who envies those who eat their possessions. This man has a tendency of hating people who spend their property as they like themselves, because of his jealousy in his life. He delays in vain in doing his works because of speaking about those who use their wealth according to their wishes in their lives.

This man resembles those who envied the one who used his wealth as he wished, because he also envies the rich people who use their wealth according to their interests in their lives. That is why he tells people that “the property of the owner is eaten by the owner.”

This proverb teaches people on how to stop being jealous of people who use their wealth as they like, so that they can spend their time for working hard enough to bring them more successes in their lives.
