About the Book

The beauty of contemporary African wise sayings is timeless in guiding our morals, and chastening our behaviours. But most importantly, imparting a sense of judgement to distinguish right from wrong, and truth from a lie. In Africa’s traditional society, such sayings stemmed from a rich source of elders who were custodians and grandmasters of wisdom; having undergone a school of humbling or inspiring experiences, and were happy to share the lessons learnt inform of sayings. Contemporary sayings were a backbone of building a strong moral based culture, as they carried with them a deeper meaning which connected instantly with one’s spiritual appreciation to life, and thereafter transforming one into an enviable asset to the community. This book offers wise sayings and their meaning with a purpose of inspiring a new generation into becoming good future citizen, but also when facing every day’s challenging situations. This will help Juveniles more especially to approach life as stable members of the society. ‘When you build a beautiful house, every brick counts. But to build an excellent character, every wise saying counts.’ Agaba Samuel Rujumba
