    "Now is the time for us to come together with one another, to organize, to speak out and speak up on behalf of each other. There is no time to waste, while we debate, define, and discuss; the enemy continues his genocidal plan. We need to bear in mind the Ashanti proverb: 'Two men in a burning house must not stop to argue.' " - Dr. Mutulu Skakur

    My favourite methali za kiswahili (Swahili proverbs)

    Mtaka cha mvunguni sharti ainame
    (Swahili proverb)

    Loosely translated: S/he who wants something under the bed must bend down to reach it.

    Asiyesikia la mkuu huvunjika guu
    (Swahili)

    S/he who does not heed the advice of an elder breaks their leg

    Hucheka kovu asiyekuwa na jeraha
    S/he laugh at scar who has received no wound

    Mtoto umleavyo ndivyo akuavyo
    As you bring up a child, so will it be
