The Man Who Knew Everything African Folklore Story

The Man Who Knew Everything African Folklore Story

Can one person know everything? In the African Folklore story of The Man Who Knew Everything, Nyeri learns a valuable lesson to listen first and then speak.



The Man Who Knew Everything African Folklore Story



Nyeri is a visitor in the village over which rules his friend King Mwangi. 


Soon Nyeri begins to find fault with things in his friends’ village: the rice-crop is not planted right, the fish-traps are made wrong, and the roofs of the huts are not strong.


One day King Mwangi has a big gathering to talk with the elders of the village. 


Nyeri also finds fault in what the King says at every turn. 


King Mwangi says to Nyeri, "My friend, when a stranger comes to a town and the people are dancing, he should learn the step before joining in, otherwise he will spoil the dance."
