We are talking this time about guava. Its scarcity to an extent is not due to unavailability in most areas but the fact that it is not that very valued as nutritional, life supporter and good booster of good health by most individuals. 
Guava is a fruit rich in nutrients; it has nice taste, sweet flavor and has much nutritional value for a healthy body. Its origination could be traced from the Americas. This fruit thrives both on arid and humid region. This is a good quality that makes it stand out (high adaptability).

It also contains fat, many minerals and vitamins. Also in the content are poly-phenolic antioxidant and flavonoid compounds that boost ones immunity against cancer cells. Guava is potentially strong as anti-aging agent.

Guava is rich in vitamin c. scientist recommend regular consumption of vitamin c as it helps in the body resistance against cancers germs and also helps in collagen synthesis. Collagen helps in maintaining the healthy conditions of the human blood vessels, skins, organs and bones.

The striking strike story in Tanzania

Teachers in a school in Sumbawanga district of Rukwu region, by name Keela Secondary School has embarked on no-teaching exercise in the school recently.
My blog pals can you guess what the cause was?

Can I help you with some options?
a. no salaries
b. no allowances
c. government subsidy
d. much school fees
e. low income
f. all of the above
g. none of the above.

Ha, I know some of you have already settled with something up there. But I beg to tell you that the correct answer will fish itself out as we discuss why.
The teachers refused to teach because the students destroyed an 8-hectare maize farm belonging to the teachers. The students will be sent to the farm for corporal punishment or something similar but they take that opportunity to destroy the maize farm. 
The teachers sent them away for some weeks and they returned and yet there was no sign of lectures in the classes as teachers refuse to teach. Why? The teachers are demanding compensation for their maize farm that was allegedly destroyed by the students.

Now answer the question, thanks a lot!
