KISWAHILI: LETA NIKUWEKEE MULE AMBAMO PANYA HAWAFIKI

Chanzo cha methali hiyo huangalia utunzaji wa vitu mhimu maishani. Hutumika kati ya watoto, ikiwa mtoto fulani anachezea chakula au hukiacha chakula hicho hovyo. Mwenzake akimwona anafanya hivyo humwambia, ‘leta mikuwekee mle ambamo panya hawafiki.’ Akimpa anakila, kama walivyoandika Pd. Don Syberts MM na Pd. Joseph Healey MM, katika kitabu chao kiitwacho ‘Kueneza Injili kwa Methali.’ Uk. 15.

Pili, methali hiyo hutumika kwa wazazi watakao kuwatunzaia watoto wao mali au chakula ili kiweze kuwasaidia baadaye.

Methali hiyo hulinganishwa kwa watu wafahamuo kuvitunza vizuri vitu vyao na vya wenzao maishani mwao, ili visipotee au visiharibike. Watu hao huwafundisha pia wenzao namna ya kuvitunza vitu au kuzitunza mali zao kama vile chakula na mavazi.

Methali hiyo huwafundisha watu juu ya umuhimu wa mali au chakula ili waweze kuvitunza visije vikaharibika hovyo. Watu hao huutumia uelewa wa umuhimu huo katika kuvitunza vitu vyao ili viweze kuwaletea maendeleo maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: BRING IT I KEEP FOR YOU WHERE THE RATS DON’T REACH

The overhead proverb focuses on the care of important things in life. It applies to children in situations whenever one is seen to be joking with something valuable like food or any other important materials. When a partner beholds such careless behavior by the counterpart, he/she tells the offender, ‘Bring it I keep for you where the rats don’t reach.’  Fr. Donald Sybertz MM and Fr. Joseph Healey MM, in their book entitled ‘Spreading the Gospel in Proverbs.’ p. 15, wrote.

Secondly, the proverb applies to parents who are keen on taking care of their wealth or possessions in order to benefit their children in future.

The proverb is compared to people who understand how to take good care of their own possessions as well as other people’s, so that they (possessions) are neither destroyed nor lost. Through this, people are also enlightened on how to take care of things, or to keep their property such as food and clothing.

Such proverb teaches people about the importance of assets or food, so that they can keep these valuables from damage or wastage. As such, the people develop a sense of care for their belongings, which in turn impacts their lives positively.
