Même si l’éléphant est maigre, il reste le roi de la forêt (Proverbe Douala – Cameroun). Il faut respecter les chefs malgré tout.
Even if an elephant is thin, he still remains the king of the jungle (Duala Proverb – Cameroon). Kings should be respected despite all.

I think that’s the first time I’ve heard anything about an elephant being the king of the jungle. I guess I’m so used to that title being given to lions even though most of them live in savannas. Besides that, it is a good proverb especially when the king or any leader is good at leading.
yes… right… we always think of the lion as the king of the jungle

Yeah, and it’s quite weird how that title came about.
