Proverbe Ndebele sur les impossibilités / Ndebele Proverb on Impossibilities

Zula proverbUn bouchon rond ne ferme pas un trou carré (Proverbe Amandebele – Zimbabwe, Afrique du Sud, Botswana).

A round cap doesn’t close a square hole (Amandebele proverb – Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa).


  1. Chalk that up to it being another example how English-language proverbs may have come from Africa. It reminds me of the famous “round peg in a square hole” saying.
