The reason for this higher population include the abundance of growth substances in the first week than in the subsequent weeks and chemical activities of other microorganism when stored for a long time.The species of fungi found in drink stored in clay pot are Aspergillus nidulan, Aspergillus flavus,  Aspergillus niger, penicilliun cyclopium. SP and saccharomaces cerevisiae. The same species of fungi were also found to be present in Mbuli stored in plastic pot.The result therefore showed that the storage material and fungi have effect on storage quality of the drink.
