Chwal ki gen dis mèt mouri nan poto “The horse which has ten masters dies at the hitching post” – A task with too many “handlers” gets neglected.
Basically, delegate specific people to do specific tasks and the task will get done, or at least you’ll know who to blame if it’s not done.
This makes me think of another Haitian Creole proverb. It deals with task delegation also: Si tout moun a cheval ki moun ki va fèmen baryè? “If everyone is on a horse, who will close the gate?”
Basically, everyone wants to be riding the horse but whose job is it to close the gate after all the horses have passed through?Haitian Creole ↔ English Reference, Look up Haitian Creole and English Words
