Carpolobia goetzei Gürke, called ‘mtindapo’ in Swahili, is a shrub or small tree up to 5 m tall, occurring in rather dry forest and savanna woodland from eastern DR Congo and southern Sudan to Mozambique and northern Madagascar. Its wood is probably used for similar purposes as that of Carpolobia alba, and in East Africa its roots are used for similar medicinal purposes. In Mozambique the wood is used as firewood.
