The meaning of
The thorns of the Ziziphus mucrota, known as the
Buffalo thorn, “blinkbaar-wag-’n-bietjie” in Afrikaans
and “mphasamhala” in Tsonga, are spaced along
the length of every branch in pairs. One of the
pair points robustly outward and forward while the
other curves back and inward in the oppiste direction.
The Nguni African legend says the thorns tell us
something about ourselves - that we must look
ahead to the future... but we must never forget where
we have come from.
