HIZI NI REHEMA ZA MUNGU

You can find the same sayings printed on many different kangas. These might include a traditional proverb or just a popular phrase. Below is an example of a kanga that has the same saying as a kanga that I posted back in 2013. The kanga that I posted in 2013 was made by Urafiki Textiles in Dar es Salaam and this kanga is made by Nida Textiles – also in Dar es Salaam.

I received this kanga at the Nida Textiles Shop in Dar es Salaam in September, 2015
