KISWAHILI: MIGUU IMENUKA MTO.
Chanzo cha msemo huo, huongelea juu ya mtu aliyekuwa akiishi kwenye mto kila wakati katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, alikuwa na bustani nyingi za miwa, ndizi, maembe, machungwa na matunda mengine mengi. Yeye alikuwa akiyatembelea mashamba yake hayo ya bustani yaliyokuwa mtoni kwa ajili ya kuyakagua na kuyatunza vizuri, maishani mwake. Ndiyo maana watu walimuita jila la “miguu imenuka mto.”
Msemo huo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huzijali kazi zake kwa kuzitunza vizuri mpaka zinamletea faida kubwa maishani mwake. Mtu huyo, huamuka asubuhi na kwenda kufanya kazi vizuri kila siku kwa sababu ya bidii yake hiyo ya kutekeleza kazi zake hizo. Yeye hupata faida kubwa kutoka kwenye kazi zake hizo kwa sababu ya umakini wake huo wa kuzitekeleza vizuri, katika maisha yake.
Mtu huyo, hufanana na yule aliyezijali bustani zake kwa kuzitunza vizuri, mpaga zikampatia faida kubwa, kwa sababu naye huzijali kazi zake kwa kuzitunza, mpaka zinamletea faida kubwa, katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana watu humuita jina la “miguu imenuka mto.”
Msemo huo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuzijali kazi zao kwa kuzitekeleza vizuri mpaka mwisho, ili waweze kupata mafanikio makubwa ya kuwasaidia vizuri, katika maisha yao.

ENGLISH: THE FEET HAVE A SMELL OF A RIVER.
The overhead saying talks about a person who lived on the river all the time in his life. This man had many gardens of sugarcane, bananas, mangoes, oranges and other fruits. He used to visit his gardens that were on the river enough to inspect and take good care of them, during his life. That is why people called him the name of “the feet have a smell of a river.”
This saying is compared to the person who takes care about his works by visiting them until they bring him great benefits in his life. This person wakes up in the morning and goes to work well every day because of his diligence in carrying out his works. He gets a lot of profit from his works because of his focus on fulfilling them well in his life.
This person is similar to the one who took care of his gardens by visiting them, until they gave him a lot of profit, because he also takes care of his works by inspecting them, until they bring him a lot of profit, in his life. That is why people call him “the feet have a smell of a river.”
This saying teaches people about taking care of their works by carrying them out well until the end, so that they can get great success can help them well, in their lives.
