Museum conquers Grahamstown airwaves

By: Zongezile Matshoba

Albany Museum used the Heritage Month to gunner home its dominance around Grahamstown. Nozipho Madinda, the Museum's Mobile Museum Services Head took along the four learners that are going to Robben Island Museum's Isivivane Solwazi Spring School. They joined DJ Luvo on his weekly Afternoon Drive Time Show (15h00 - 18h00) on Tuesday to tell the listeners of Grahamstown FM Community Radio how they feel about their trip, and what they hope to learn and see.

Phumlani Cimi, the Museum Botanist, has been the guest of Kwanele Butana who runs a traditional programme every Saturdays from 13h00 - 14h00. He shared the value of the Herbarium, and how it identifies every plant's usefulness and danger. The Herbarium has over 200 000 specimen. Cimi, who specialises on indeginous plants, has also developed a recipe book on nutrious indigenous plant for the blind.
