Letter to the Editor

Ifiwawasha, mabuyu: Why are our scientists sleeping?

Dear editor,
SUDDENLY, ifiwawasha, amabuyu are in demand – thanks to reports that they are not only nutritious but heal diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Now, this should be food for thought for the University of Zambia as well as its sister Copperbelt University.
I also expect the National Industrial and Scientific Research to show interest in such stories and commission studies to ascertain the medicinal properties and nutrition value of these wild fruits?
Are we waiting for foreigners and donors to come and school us about our indigenous fruits?
