Mlambe is a Malawian vernacular term for the baobab tree. The Mlambe tree is indigenous to Africa and has a rich history and tradition in many societies across the continent. One of the world’s longest (over 2000 years) living tree species, the Mlambe stands gigantically in the hot and dry savannas and has multiple uses. Every part of the tree has a beneficial use to the people! It does not only support people’s needs, it also supports a numerous Wild Life such as insects, birds and small rodents – even larger animals have good stories to tell too! Others have dubbed it a complete ecosystem! The tree is also a traditional symbol of wisdom. Villagers gather to discuss matters affecting their communities including story telling under the Mlambe. Even community leaders preside over conflicts in the shade of this natural village court. Additionally, in some societies the tree has been regarded as a deity because symptomatic of holiness. The Mlambe is also well known for its resilience because it can endure long drought periods while other plants wilt.
The tree is so dear to Africa so much that in some countries it is a protected species while in others it has been declared a national monument. We at MCAf are proud to be associated with this great symbol of the African society and heritage as we share the same values reflecting versatility and effectiveness in our service delivery initiatives to clients!
