I asked the group for a local proverb and they said, "We have many proverbs!"
"Though we have no hump we can still do something." This referred to the hump on the shoulder of healthy Angola Cattle. The hump must be a sign of being hearty and strong. They are saying though they are not strong and healthy they are working to do something good for their families.
Robbinah has used the same funny local proverb on several occaisions when we have been discussing the Women of the Proverbs that goes,
"Too many rats cannot complete a task."
