Abstract
ALTHOUGH sweet potatoes are an important native food crop in many tropical countries, reports of suspected virus diseases .in them are few. The first [1] came from the United States of America in 1920. This has been followed by several further reports from America but none seems to have come from any other country except Africa. Although it was not at the time recognized as such, probably the first African report of a virus disease in sweet potato came in 1939 from the farm attached to the Kilo Moto Mines in Ituri, Belgian Congo.
