Tsumo - Shumo
Rushavashava rune zizi
kwarafamba rinonzi muroyi.
It is the owl's bad luck to be called a witch wherever it goes.
An unfortunate fellow will always be blamed when something goes wrong, even when he is not responsible. An innocent person will quote the proverb in self-defence against those who accuse of a crime.
-- Shona Proverb
From Tsumo - Shumo by Mordikai A. Hamutyinei and Albert B. Plangger
