hati-hati dengan pokok keladi ni..


With kind regards and best wishes, Dr. Kivumby.
Dear all,
Please read below. The message is true. I almost lost my daughter who put a piece of the leaf of this plant in her mouth and her tongue swelled to the point of suffocation. This is one plant but there are others with the same characteristics of coloring. Those are also poisonous and we should get rid of them. Please watch out for our children. As we all leave our children home in the hands of the helpers, we should give them a safe environment where they can play.

"This plant that we have in our homes and offices is extremely dangerous!
This plant is common in Kenya , Rwanda, Uganda in plant nurseries, many offices and homes. It is a deadly poison, mainly for the children. It can kill a kid in less than a minute and an adult in 15 minutes. It should be uprooted from gardens and taken out of offices. If touched, one should never touch ones eyes; it can cause partial or permanent blindness. Please alert your buddies.

Getak keladi ni memang bercun, kalau terkena kulit rasanya seperti dihiris dengan pisau pencukur. Kalau tertelan, hampir maut.
Orang kampung sengaja tanam di tepi pagar supaya kalau pencuri lompat masuk jatuh ke atas pokok ini akan lompat semula keluar pagar.
Kalau ada anak kecil, awas, bahaya tanam.
