Proverbe sur le Riche / Proverb on the Rich

African tree at dusk

African tree at dusk

On jette des pierres dans l’arbre s’il porte des fruits (Proverbe Bakongo – République du Congo, République Démocratique du Congo, Angola). – Plus on est riche ou au pouvoir, plus on est importuné et critiqué.

We throw stones in the tree if it bears fruits (Bakongo proverb – Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola). – The richer or more powerful one is, the more one is bothered and criticized.

  1. Great proverb. It sort of reminds me of the phrase “Heavy is the crown”.
