Ciakorire wacu mugunda
The food found Wacu in the field.
The proverb originates in the legend of Wacu, the most despised amongst the wives of a rich man who never gave her any presents. One day, when a banquet was being held at home, she went to work in the field, since she knew there would be nothing for her at home. In the middle of the banquet a raven swooped down in the courtyard where the meat was being roasted, snatched a big piece and brought it to Wacu.
The Kikuyu use the proverb to say that God takes care of His poor.
