Virtually every township house in Zimbabwe has a small vegetable patch in the yard on which one of a variety of muriwo is grown. Virtually every township street corner has a vendor selling tomatoes and bundles of the vegetable. Even the poorest family in the worst grip of any hardship has this hardy kale to fall back on. A plate of stiff maize porridge ( sadza ) accompanied by muriwo is the ultimate insurance against famine, unemployment and , yes, dictators.
