Quite common in the area round KwaMbili is a small shrub called the Corkbush. It has a relatively light green leaf compared to the rest of the foliage and – unbelievably – it is used for fishing! But not in the sense you’d think. It earns its name from its brittle and soft bark which resembles a wine cork. Local people found that they could use this for fishing by breaking the bark into smaller pieces and throwing it into the water. Fish would then eat this and die from it and then, floating to the surface, provide an easy supply of food. Who would think that a simple little bush could be so useful in sustaining someone!
