    It's accurate for NE Africans, but it's flawed for SE Africans Niger-Congos, it show Kenyan Bantus having half of their ancestry to Ethiopians on K=2, which is ridiculous, the categories people is based on an arbitrary geographical location, rather than history, or actual genetics.

    You mean the Kikuyu? No, that's normal - Kikuyu, or at least the publicly-available sample of them, have loads of Horner-like ancestry, presumably having intermarried with earlier (Cushitic or South Nilotic speaking?) populations with Pastoral Neolithic ancestry.

    for instance in G25: Kikuyu average - 36% Kenyan Pastoral Neolithic, 16% Dinka, 48% Pemba 600BP [Bantu] - distance 1.4628%
