    The ‘magic herb’ that has made thousands of people flock to remote Loliondo village in Tanzania was identified by Kenyan scientists four years ago as a cure for a drug-resistant strain of a sexually transmitted disease.

    An expert on herbal medicine also said yesterday the herb is one of the most common traditional cures for many diseases. It is known as mtandamboo in Kiswahili and it has been used for the treatment of gonorrhoea among the Maasai, Samburu and Kikuyu.

    The Kamba refer to it as mukawa or mutote and use it for chest pains, while the Nandi boil the leaves and bark to treat breast cancer, headache and chest pains.

    Four years ago, local researchers turned to the plant for the treatment of a virus that causes herpes. Led by Dr Festus M Tolo of the Kenya Medical Research Institute (Kemri), the team from the University of Nairobi and the National Museums of Kenya found the herb could provide alternative remedy for herpes infections.

    “An extract preparation from the roots of Carissa edulis, a medicinal plant locally growing in Kenya, has exhibited remarkable anti-herpes virus activity for both wild type and drug resistant strains,” they reported in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology.

    No negative effects

    Science is not a key to everything people.. We usually believe in science and forget that even our local ways can be scientific if we use the systematically and choose to believe them. I think Babu has shown that we can question science' as it has its limitations over time, and people have stoped thinkin in the name of science. It was once argued that " the same ways of generating knowledge are the same ways of generating ignorance" In the name of science we usuall generate ignorance on some traditional ways that are very very usefull.

    Ok,now the medecin is well known even to scientists!! So it doesn't relate to God's faith as Babu decleared?? Qns may arise if it was well known why Babu has decided to involve with God's faith as if he is the first to discover the tree?? For my side,pple should not put much emphasis on God's revelation to babu rather they have to consider it as other Powerful TRADITIONAL MEDICINE!! Remember: we are living in the last dayz so many things will happen concerning revelation!!
