KISWAHILI: MFALME AMEANGUKA MIGUUNI.
Chanzo cha msemo huo, kilianzia kwa watu waliolima mashamba wakapata chakula kingi sana. Watu hao, walilima mashamba ya mazao mbalimbali ambayo yaliwapatia chakula kingi mpaga wakaanza kukikanyaga kwa miguu yao, kwa sababu ya wingi wake uliowazidi hivyo. Ndiyo maana watu hao walianza kusema kwamba, “mfalme ameanguka miguuni.”
Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye hulima mashamba makubwa ya mazao mbalimbali, na kupata chakula kingi, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, hujibidisha kulima mazao ya aina mbalimbali kwenye mashamba yake hayo makubwa, ambayo humpatia chakula kingi cha kula na kusaza kwenye familia yake, kwa sababu ya bidii yake hiyo kufanya kazi. Yeye hukusanya mali nyingi sana katika kilimo chake hicho, kwa sababu ya umakini wake mkubwa katika kuyatekeleza vizuri majukumu yake, maishani mwake.
Mali ya mtu huyo, hufanana na chakula kingi walichokipata wale wakulima ambacho walishindwa kukimalima kukila mpaka wakaanza kukikanyaga kwa miguu yao, kwa sababu nazo zimekuwa nyingi sana, mpaka mtu huyo na familia yake, wakashindwa kuzimalima. Ndiyo maana watu hao walisema kwamba, “mfalme ameanguka miguuni.”
Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kujibidisha kufanya kazi zao kwa bidii kubwa mpaka wafanikiwe kupata mali nyingi, cha kuweza kuyamaliza matatizo ya njaa, katika familia zao.
ENGLISH: THE KING HAS FALLEN ON HIS FEET.
The origin of the above saying started from the people who farmed enough to get a lot of food. They cultivated a variety of crops that provided them with plenty of food to point of starting to trample it underfoot, because of its excessive quantity. That is why the people began to say that, “the king has fallen on his feet.”
This saying is related to a man who cultivates a large farm of crops, and obtains plenty of food, throughout his life. This man, in turn, strives to cultivate a wide variety of crops on his large farm, which provides him with plenty of food to eat for his family, because of his hard working. He accumulates a great deal of wealth in his field, because of his great care in carrying out his duties, in his lifetime.
This man’s property is like the food that the farmers got which they could not finish to use it until they began to trample it with their feet, because he also got so abundant food that his his family could not finish to use it. That is why the people said that, “The king has fallen on his feet.”
This saying teaches people on how to work hard enough to succeed in acquiring more wealth for using in their families, so that they can end hunger problems in their families.
