Bemba Proverb Collection

Umulale uwamoneka taona nongo.
The crack which became visible does not spoil the pot. (Forewarned is forearmed. The crack can be mended before it gets worse. A stitch in time saves nine.)
Icilubo nga camoneka bwangu kano ukucilungika. Nangu ubulwele nga bwaishibikwa, umuti tawafya. Twilafisa fintu ku bantu.
