This issue of Indilinga: African Journal of Indigenous Knowledge Systems continues along the theme of the last issue, namely "African Indigenous Knowledge and Poverty Eradication". The decision to continue with the same theme is due to the growing role that poverty eradication policies have been given by African governments and that it has been a dominant theme in the African media, and with intellectuals. Through the articles submitted for publication in this issue, the problem of poverty in Africa seems to be a recurrent theme by scholars and researchers indicating that this may be a sign that research in our context is trying to meet the most pressing challenge in Africa today, namely poverty. On top of that it demonstrates that the research on issues touching poverty eradication is increasing and that the majority of African Governments are willing to finance research in areas that they consider relevant for fighting poverty and for development.
