Many people look at motoke as a plant while others see it as merely food. And others still ask what this is all about! In Buganda matoke is much more than a plant and food. It is one of the most cherished aspects of Buganda culture. Matoke were here long before the arrival of European explorers. It is believed that it was in the rein of Kintu, Buganda’s first revolutionary King after the fall of Ttonda dynasty, that Matoke was introduced. Since that time matoke have been a part of the Baganda, for now close to 800 years.
