Ungenaphi – Thando Kenneth Lunga

This is one of those short African proverbs literally meaning “where do you fit in”
This short proverb was always on the tip of my grandmother’s tongue. As a little boy, I would come running to her with a story that I have heard or seen, she would listen attentively and when I am done she would slowly say,
‘Ungenaphi wena lapho? Simple meaning Do I have anything to do with whatever was happening.

I realized later when I was grown up that granny was trying to make me aware of my own things, not just everything around me. Now when I look at it, its simple showed me to stick in my own lane, no gossiping and to gather proper facts before telling any stories.
