English Translation

a spider's web traps himself


Definition

It literally means a spider's web traps himself. It's a saying used when someone who tries to put other people into trouble ends up being caught in his own trap. And therefore you should not try to put people into trouble lest you get caught up in your own evil trap(machinations or manipulations). The word "anancy" used there means a spider with etymology traced to the Fante(Akan) language spoken in Ghana formerly The Gold Coast.
