Tutsi "Southeastern African" ancestry may be a component shared with luhya like or proto Luhya eastern bantus. Just that component is older in the region than the Angola& congolese one. Pretty sure they are the reference for that region anyway. I wonder if the extra central bantu ancestry is more recent in the Great Lakes region and Greater East Africa region?! Tutsi on 23andme seem overall to have very minimal "Angola & Congolese". See below my relative on the right and my regional assignment on the left. Thoughts?

    On 23andme I get 41.2% Angolan & Congolese + 33.9% South Eastern African i wonder what caused myself to score more Congolese than South Eastern African

    My Gencove results

    71% Eastern Africa
    25% Western Africa
    2% Middle East
    1% Central Asia
    1% Central Africa

    What do you think about your updated results, would you say it is a disappointment or an improvement? 23andme is also giving hints of another update v5.9 the new testers are receiving the update first from what iv'e seen so lets hope for an improvement.

    You may be able to see the V5.9 update from your newest relatives' results, as I have, but none of my African relatives have had the update so far. From what I can see, it looks to be cutting down on "broadly xyz" categories- I saw a rather impressive breakdown from a new relative in which 51% out of their 51.2% WANA was entirely Levantine. I don't know how the update will impact African results, but hopefully we will see similar precision.

    The upcoming Ancestry update (see preview here) is such a disappointment for some East and Central Africans. I had hoped to see a Sudanese (Nilotic) component similar to 23andme or even the current somewhat mislabeled "hunter gatherer".

    Here is the link to the official white paper with all of the new regions and reference sample stats: Ancestry White Paper
