KISWAHILI: AMEKUFA KIKONDOO.
Chanzo cha msemo huo, chotokea kwenye namna kondoo anavyokufa. Kondoo huyo, ni mfugo unayofugwa na watu pia ni nyama inayoliwa. Hivyo basi, kondoo huyo, hata akikamatwa na adui yake hufumilia tu mpaga kufa kwake kwa sababu ya uzubaifu wake huo. Ndiyo maana hata mtu anayepata tatizo na kukaa kimya mpaga anaumia huambiwa kwamba, “amekufa kikondoo.”
Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huficha matatizo yake mpaka yanamuumiza, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, hupata matatizo kama vile ugonjwa akavumilia tu bila kwenda kupata matibabu hospitalini wala kuwambia wenzake, kwa sababu ya kuogopa kuchekwa na watu, maishani mwake. Yeye huumizwa na matatizo hayo hata kufikia hatua ya kupoteza maisha, kwa sababu ya kuwaficha wenzake, matatizo yake hayo.
Mtu huyo, hufanana na kondoo yule aliyekamatwa na adui yake akavumilia mpaka kufa kwake, kwa sababu naye huwaficha wenzake matatizo yake mpaka yanamuumiza, katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana watu humwambia kwamba, “amekufa kikondoo.”
Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuacha kuyaficha matatizo waliyo nayo kwa kuwashirikisha wenzao, na kutafuta njia za kuyatatua, ili waweze kuulinda vizuri uhai wao, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: HE/SHE HAS DIED LIKE A LAMB.
The cradle of this saying occurred in the way which a sheep died. The sheep is a livestock that is raised by people and it is a meat that can be eaten by them. Therefore, even if the sheep is caught by the enemy, only endures the suffering to the point of dying because of its cowardice. That is why even to a person who has a problem and stays silent when he is hurt is told that, “he/she has died like a lamb.”
This saying is compared to the person who hides his problems until they hurt him, in his life. Such person gets problems such as illness which he just endures it without going to get treatment at the hospital or telling his colleagues, because he is afraid of being laughed at by people, in his life. He is hurt by these problems to the point of losing his life, because of hiding his problems from being known his colleagues.
This person is like the sheep that was caught by its enemy that endured until its death, because he also hides his problems from his colleagues until they hurt him, in his life. That is why people tell him that, “he/she has died like a lamb.”
This saying teaches people to stop hiding the problems which they have by sharing with their peers, enough to find ways that can solve them, so that they can protect their lives well, in their lives.
