Bamileke Proverb on Honesty / Proverbe Bamiléké sur l’Honnêteté

mudWhen we fall in the mud, we do not deny getting soiled (Bamileke proverb – Cameroon). – When we are actually wrong, do not deny it.

Quand on fait une chute dans la boue, on ne nie pas qu’on s’est sali (Proverbe Bamiléké – Cameroun). – Quand on a réellement tort, il ne faut pas nier.


  1. That is a smart proverb. One thing really bugs me is when people don’t take responsibility for their own actions.


    • Yes… agreed!

      • Of course. I could repeat some examples or give a whole laundry list, but I don’t think it’s necessary.
