It is understandable if one doesn’t understand Igede language when it is spoken. But if it could be understood and yet the speaker claims to know how to read and write English excellently but finds it difficult to read a word of Igede language. The reason is because, they are all languages, they all use letters, they all have consonant and vowel sounds. So? What else? ?
Just in case you are one of the people finding this language difficult to read, I implore you to keep following our articles, Igede Proverb of the Day and others in Igedeonline.com up and positive changes will definitely be obtainable. Now, back to business.
The Proverb in Igede language ?
Ukuchwu ole ko ju kepwu ny’uje ny’ogbiji, owa ogbiji akaa chi le
English translation of the proverb ?
It is the hand that enters a vipers den that the viper will sting.
Igede Proverbs teach moral lessons and they inculcate wisdom to the listeners. This particular one is saying that, no one can be punished for a crime he/she knows nothing about. Instead of saying that directly, a viper and a human being is rather used to illustrate it.
Mr Ajiga: Chief Ode’s son stole a goat from the neighboring village and they threatened to arrest Chief the father.
Mr Ogbaji: Ooliyeti? Ukuchwu ole ko ju kepwu ny’uje ny’ogbiji, owa ogbiji akaa chi le. Onghohie aw’iChief koo!
Mr Ajiga’s response says: “what is the reason? It is the hand that enters the vipers den/hole that the viper stings. Nobody should arrest Chief. Use the comment section to give your reviews, observations and contributions. See you in the next edition.
