Momordica balsamina L. (Kekana) - The legend

When the Portuguese settled in Africa, a troop garrison was placed on the borders of the Limpopo River. The troops soon succumbed to an epidemic of marsh fever (paludism), a mosquito transmitted disease. Conventional treatment at the time was painful and slow. A local Shangaan pointed out a healer (traditional doctor) who had an effective cure for marsh fever. Soon word spread that this disease could be cured in three days with this bitter herb - Kakana.

Within a short period of time, the Portuguese troops were queuing at the door of the traditional doctor and refused treatment by the conventional doctor residing in the camp. The humiliation was total. This is one of many painful lessons conventional medicine has learned in Africa.

The traditional doctor capitalized on the economic potential of his medication. He set up a small restaurant next to the camp and refused to sell his medication to the troops unless they ate at his restaurant. Kakana was not only prescribed medicinally but was served as a sauce with everything from prawns to chickens.

Momordica balsamina L - Kakana has been distributed in leaf form by Portuguese herbal establishments since the 1950's.
