BEWARE OF THE NAKED MAN WHO OFFERS YOU CLOTHES


By Vernalee

“Beware of the naked man who offers you clothes is an African proverb used to call out hypocrites. You know who they are. They are those people “who are single but give advice on how to have a happy marriage; those people who are overweight supplying dieting tips; environmentalists who do not recycle; politicians who send their children to private schools but campaign on the virtues of public education,” and the list goes on. You get the point; right?

The proverb implies that a person should back up their talking with action. When you walk the talk, you essentially - do what you said. You are what the old folks call - “a for real person.”
