Proverbe sur l’Etranger / Proverb on the Outsider


Poule blanche / White hen

L’étranger est comme une poule blanche: on le reconnaît immédiatement (Proverbe Tumbuka – Malawi, Tanzanie, Zambie).

A stranger is like a white hen: he stands out (Tumbuka proverb – Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia).


  1. Interesting proverb. I’ll ignore the low-hanging fruit when it comes to strangers in Africa and the color of the hen.
