An infusion of the roots is used by the Ndebele against general body pains, by the Shona against dizziness, convulsions and gonorrhoea.

This tree, it is said, can assist in fighting fever and other symptoms of malaria. It is also used as treatment for diabetes in areas of Africa. Another clue: It's fruit is loved by elephants, monkeys, baboons birds and humans. It grows in Kruger and surrounds. What tree is it?
