African Proverbs 4

Here’s an Igbo proverb made popular by Chinua Achebe: When Elephants fight the grass suffers.

There’s a Swahili version of it: When two Elephants fight the grass gets hurt.

Explanation: For instance, when a child’s parents fight or separate, the child suffers most. Also when there’s war or strife in a country the poor masses suffer the most.
