Chewa Proverb Collection

Kadapota nyanga kamadya ndi mvumbi.
The animal which grew horns is the one that ate during the rain.
(One animal was afraid of the rain, did not get wet, and did therefore not eat well during that time. He went to steal food after the rainy season and got killed. Had he eaten well during the rains, he'd have been able to stand the dry season, when there is little food. Foresee.)
