  1. Kenyan Sweet Potatoes have gain market in the UK …today walk in any supermarket you will find frozen sweet fries sold …Zambia we are still treating as a subsistence meal for merely boiling and chewing.

    • @ Jay Jay its just sad that in Zambia we discuss the diaspora yet don’t see opportunities that arise for trade! I just fail to understand why even the most popular national pride mealie meal hardly finds itself legally crossing borders! I have come across west African yams, impwa and, plantains!
