He wrote a book about how harurwa insects originated inoder to quench his curiosity and followed up with a documentary film. After that he always thought that there are some medicinal properties in harurwa. According to Maredza , he declared that he proven right when he led a team of scientists who indeed have proved that harurwa have the essential fatty acids of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 and It doesn’t end there , there is also phosphorus in harurwa . He said ,” This has led to the production of harurwa nutraceutical , each harurwa Nutraceutical capsule weighs about a gram which is equal to 2 harurwas in powder form and this capsules are taken as a medicinal food to heal many ailments.” Maredza have sent the capsules to various places including the office of the President in view of the government’s thrust to promote indigenous knowledge systems but still haven’t heard as little as just an acknowledgement of receipt. He is looking for government and financiers to assist him to enlarge his noble cause.
