  1. Kenya should follow suit. As true to it’s adaptability distribution pattern, “it grows well where it is greatly needed), Kenya poverty stricken areas have very condusive climate for Moringa growing where Moringa is almost naturalized but with very low intake rate.

    The Government should break medical bureaucracy and promote moringa like other countries and reap big in promoting health and small businesses.
