Chisi hachieri musi wacharimwa.


The consequences of failing to observe the chisi rest day are not suffered on that very day.


Chisi refers to a day of rest observed by the Shona each week. This day is considered sacred. It is believed that failure to observe chisi will result in misfortune for the offender or community at large. Such consequences, however, will likely not be suffered on the day of wrongdoing.


Even if punishment is not promptly meted out on wrongdoers, a time will come when justice will be served.
