Proverbe Congolais sur le Protocole / Congolese Proverb on Protocol


Marmite / Pot

Même si vous avez faim, vous ne mettez pas la main dans la marmite de votre belle-mère (Proverbe Ntomba – RDC). – Il y a des choses qu’on ne fait pas.

Even if you are hungry, you do not put your hand into your mother-in-law’s pot (Ntomba proverb – DRC). – There are things that are not done.


  1. That sounds like good advice there.
