A champion bull starts from birth.
A child points out to you the direction and then you find your way.
A messenger cannot be beaten.
Bad dancing does not break an engagement.
Beer that will spoil ferments unequally.
Competition exhausted the lungs.
Even an expert swimmer drowns.
Hurry hurry has no blessings. (Ndetekhane yayia ameno)
Only someone else can scratch your back.
Suppression of hunger leads to death.
The blame of the antelope is on the hunter.
The devil turns against its friend.
The eyes of the in-law belittle what they have seen.
The fire burns the fire maker.
Think before you act. (Andakonya yalikha obukhaya)
You suffer from smoke produced by the firewood you fetched yourself.
You only make a bridge where there is a river.
