Cassia abbrivata commonly known, as Monepenepe in Botswana is a widespread shrub or medium sized tree or shrub belonging to the Caesalpinaceae family. In Africa it grows from Somalia to South Africa. It is important medicine plant utilized by people living in rural and urban areas where it grows. The bark and roots of the plant have medicinal properties that treat different ailment in Botswana and other countries where it grows. Too much cutting of the bark and root digging for medicinal uses has left many trees dead in Botswana. It is therefore recommended that removal of the bark for medicine should be in small pieces and not around the trunk (ring barking) if the tree is to be preserved. This study reviews the characteristics and medicinal uses of Cassia abbriviata.
