Cassia occidentalis L. (Caesalpiniaceae) was exhaustively extracted with n-hexane and subsequently with methanol. The methanol portion was subsequently partition with chloroform, ethyl acetate and n-butannol. The phytochemical studies of the partition portion were done using standard protocols. The zone of inhibition (ZI), Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC) were determined. The antimicrobial screening revealed that the extract exhibited varying activity against different microbes. These activities observed could be attributed to the presence Active metabolites contained in the extract.
