Proverbe sur la Médisance / Proverb on Badmouthing


Arbrisseau / Shrub

Ne faites pas vos besoins sous un arbrisseau; un autre peut y chercher de l’ombre (Proverbe Zulu – Afrique du Sud, Zimbabwe). – Ne médire de personne, on aura peut-être besoin de lui.

Do not relieve yourself under a shrub; another could look for shade under it (Zulu proverb – South Africa, Zimbabwe). – Do not badmouth anyone, you may need him.


  1. Thank you so much! African Heritage!!!


  2. Great proverb in general. I wish more people would take that advice to heart.
