GENETICS Somali Bantu 23andme results

Thought this might interest some of you


What confuses me the most is that most of her bantu DNA is derived from the Congo in comparison to the most accepted theory that somali bantus are costal swahilis from Mozambique and Tanzania and she’s also 14.6% somali which means intermarriage does happen

The only way genomic companies can differentiate Bantus is by focusing on the acquired non-Bantu admixture Forest forager/Pygmy in the Congo area, Nilotic & Cushitic in the Northeast, and lastly Khoisan in the Far South.

she’s also 14.6% somali which means intermarriage does happen
Southern ethnic Somali clans raped their women and left the mixed offspring in their community. Same thing happened to African Americans and part Anglo origins through rapist men.

Lastly, Madowweyne communities differ. The ones from the Shabelle tend to have more part Somali origins than those from the Jubba who were more recently shipped in.

What do u mean I don’t understand what your saying
Everybody from her Madowweyne community could have it at that percentage. So it is unlikely from her having 1 full Somali great grandparent.

For comparison, here is the result of a half Tigre half Kunama.

Kunamas are a Nilote minority of Eritrea.



Assuming the Sudanese percentage is all from the Kunama:

78.4% Sudanese
21.6% Ethiopian and Eritrean

Almost the same ratio as the Somali Bantu have in Bantu vs Horner.

She also has a bit of Ethiopian/eritrean which is too large of a percentage to be noise. Which somali clans do the bantus of the shabelle intermarry with? My dads from mahaday weyne which is smack in the middle of the river

Kenyan Bantus carry the Ethiopian component from South Cushites or it could be from the Rahanweyn who have more Ethiopian than other Somalis.

If she’s half tigre than that means tigre are mixed with kunama not the opposite since she’s more sudanese than Ethiopia/eritrean

That screenshot is of a half Tigre half Kunama person. It is rare to find a Kunama in the West, so we have to go by that result.

The Tigre parent:

92.6% Ethiopian and Eritrean
7.4% Middle Eastern and South Asian

The Kunama parent:

78.4% Sudanese
21.6% Ethiopian and Eritrean

Islam wins doesnt take Ls Long Live Somalia 🇸🇴
Not surprising considering that they live in a somali population for a while admixture even if its little is bound to happen

So Somali Bantu are basically African Americans level admixed which is kind of a shock Bantu genes dominate. :damn:

Benadiris have 35-40% Somali admixture, lol.

Although 23andme sucks and lists Arab+Somali as Habesha and inflates their Ethiopian percentages.

Yea that percent of somali wont change your phenotype
She is a Shabelle JW. Apparently they have more Somali admixture than Jubba JWs. Lastly, AAs are admixed with full Eurasians. Ethnic Somalis are not full Eurasian, only 38%.
