Leo ni leo, asemae kesho mwongo! To day is today, he who says tomorrow is a liar.
Punda na afe, lakini mzigo ufike. Let the donkey die, but the load should reach it's destination.
Mzowea vya kunyonga, vya kuchina haviwezi. He who is not used to strangle, can not slaughter.
Haraka haraka haina Baraka. Haste is waste -or- haste is not a blessing.
Dua la kuku, halimpati mwewe. The curse from the hen, does not afflict the hawk.
Kidole kimoja hakivunji chawa - One finger cannot kill a louse.
