Abantu banye bayanakekelana kungaze kubenzima kanjani
English Literal Equivalent: No kinsfolk has ever abandoned each other, as offsprings of civet cats always follow each other wherever they go
English Meaning: Relatives will always be there for each other even in the hardest of the times
Context: It is believed that the young ones of a civet cat will always follow each other wherever they go. This implies that these felines recognize one of their own and will always be there for each other. This proverb derives from this behaviour of civet cats and it suggests that people can learn from this act by supporting family.
Application: There were situations where ordinary people would not be in a position to assist a person and only family can such as some funeral processes. This could be because of something that is only known by the family which could be the presence of a spirit. In such scenarios it is family members only who would find themselves assisting. This proverb is applied in such scenarios where family members are encouraged to stand for each other no matter what the circumstances are.
