The meaning of Sawubona...
This Zulu greeting, literally means “I see you.” More than words of politeness, sawubona carries the importance of recognising the worth and dignity of each person. It says, “I see the whole of you—your experiences, your passions, your pain, your strengths and weaknesses, and your future. You are valuable to me.”
Sawubona is also infused with the belief that when others “see” me, then I exist. The common response is “Shiboka”, which means “I exist for you”. These are more than greetings. They’re ways to vitalise the other person by giving full attention and presence, communicating how much value they carry within them.
Sawubona. We see you.
May we have the gift to see more clearly together in the years to come.
