2000 Chinyanja Proverbs

edited by Joseph Chaphadzika Chakanza

There are few published collections of Chinyanja proverbs, many of which are in danger of being lost forever. This collection of proverbs and figurative expressions is an important contribution to the preservation of traditional wisdom from this Malawian language group. Chinyanja is becoming a principal lingua franca in Central Africa and the preservation of an integral part of its culture is preserved through recording the wisdom of the ages. English translations and explanations of proverbs are given.
