The combination causes the dripping of milk like substance similar to breast milk hence the name of Amabere ga Nyina Mwiru a local word for breasts of Nyinamwiru.
According to an oracle; Nyinamwiru daughter to king Bukuku the reigning king of the Bachwezi at the time; would get married and give birth to a son who would dethrone his grandfather. In a fit of rage, Bukuku whose daughter had refused chosen suitors selected by him decided to kill her. He cut off her breasts and threw them in the cave.
