KISWAHILI: AMEVALISHWA NGUO.
Chanzo cha msemo huo chaangalia uvalishwaji wa nguo wa mtu fulani. Zamani watu walikuwa wakiishi uchi. Walikuwa akiitwa kuvalishwa nguo za kuwafaa walipofikia umri wa kuoa au kuolewa ili kuonesha kwamba, wanaweza kuwa na mji wao. Ndiyo maana watu walisema juu ya yule aliyepitia hatua hiyo kwamba, “amevalishwa nguo.”
Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye ameyashikilia vizuri malezi ya kuacha matendo maovu kwa kutenda mema, aliyoyapokea kutoka kwa wazazi au wakubwa wake, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, hufundishwa vizuri maadili mema na wazazi wake mpaga akazoea kuishi vizuri na watu kwa kuwasaidia noa katika kutenda mema kwa sababu ya unyenyekevu wake. Yeye hufaulu kuilea vyema familia yake kwa sababu ya kuyaishi vizuri maadili yake hayo mema, maishani mwake.
Mtu huyo, hufanana na yule aliyekuwa akiishi uchi mpaga alipofikia umri wa kuoa au kuolewa ndipo akavalishwa nguo, kwa sababu naye aliyaacha matendo maovu alipofundishwa maadili mema na mazazi wake, katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia kwamba, “amevalishwa nguo.”
Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwalea katika maadali mema watu wao, kwa kuyaishi vizuri maadali hayo wao wenyewe, ili waweze kuzilea vyema familia zao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: HE/SHE HAS BEEN DRESSED IN CLOTHES.
The foundation of the above saying looks at someone’s clothing. In the past some people lived naked. They were called to dress appropriately when they reached at the age of marriage to show that, they have grown to maturity. That is why people told one of those who went through such process that, “he/she has been dressed in clothes.”
This saying is compared to a person who has held to the pattern of abstinence from evil by doing good deeds, which he has received from his parents in his lifetime. This man is well-educated and well-mannered, and his parents are accustomed to living with people who help him to do good deeds because of his humility. He manages to raise his family well because of his good deeds in his life.
This man resembles the one who was living naked until when he grew old enough to get married and then got dressed, because he also stopped doing bad things when he was taught good manners by his parents in his life. That is why people say to him that, “he has been dressed in clothes.”
This saying teaches people on how to raise good manners, by living well according to the values of the societies, so that they can better raise their families in their lives.
