    Yeah here in Mombasa almost all the Bajunis ive seen look Bantu-Arab & also Bantu + Somali + Yemeni which is what makes them distinct from the local Swahili community clans in Mombasa like the one im from the ( Wa-Jomvu), Wa-Chagamwe, Wa-Kilindini, Wa-Mvita & Wa-Tangana who most of the time look pure Bantu.

    The Bajunis themselves consider themselves distinct from other Swahili communities despite many similarities we have with them.

    A few of my Bajuni friends also have this Cushitic + Yemeni + Significant Bantu phenotype I'd like to post their pictures and discuss it further but I guess ill just have to follow the rules of Anthrogenica.

    Yeah. My guess is that most of our bantu admixture comes via our other ancestry and we likely already had bantu admixture before we obtained our Somali admixture, which my guess came from a later events. Also, the majority of us have recent Somali admixture (grand mothers and fathers), which is very common.

    I have seen a few Banjuni results. They are very similar to Benadiris minus our Cushitic Admixutre. If it wasn't for our Cushitic admixture, we would almost be identical.

    You think prior to the last three generations the Benadiris didn't mix with the local Somalis & Raxanweyn (Tunni for example)?

    No. Most likely we did, considering our maternal lineages is mostly local to the area. However, after independence especially, there has been allot more intermixing with local Somalis from what I have heard and can make out. My guess is this directly coincides with the urbanization of towns like Mogadishu in the last century.

    From the 23andme results I've seen from Southern Somalis & Raxanweyn is that many of them have higher frequencies of trace South Asian & West Asian ancestry compared to other Somalis.Some of that could be from Banadiri females especially the old coastal clans but also the interior clans could have been impacted by Benadiri-like Sheekhash/Sheekhaal individuals could have also spread said ancestry in the interior.It probably was a bi-directional geneflow, the biyomaal sultan that signed a treaty with the Italians looked very Benadiri admixed himself.

    Yeah. I have many Somali matches. The ones I match closest with almost always have minor south/west Asian ancestry.

    I have also read somewhere that it was common for bandari clans to form alliances with the main clans through marriage in return for things like protection.

    Are those your results in the screenshot?

    Edit: Do you know what’s up with the second set of results? The bold text only adds up to 75%.

    Thanks for pointing that out. Her results are on the right and I forgot to add her Middle-eastern percentage.
