ANCIENT EGYPTIANS WERE UGANDAN


AFRICAN HERITAGE
ANCIENT EGYPTIANS WERE UGANDAN

The Egyptians were black people, darker than most dark skinned people living in Uganda. The Egyptians called themselves Kemites or “people of Kemet”, meaning “the black people”.
In the wall of the tomb of Ramses III, the Egyptians left an almost color picture (bas-relief) of what they looked like. They painted the Egyptian as black in full color. They painted another black person dressed like the rest of the Africans; who was dressed like the first Egyptians. They then painted a white person as the Indo European and the Semite (half African – half Asiatic) resembling the present day Arabs.
To the list of the exquisite murals that show the Egyptians as very black people, one can add the Egyptian sculpture of “Battalion 40” of armed Sudanese from the tomb of Prince Masathi of Assiout of the 12th dynasty the Her-Em-Eket (moulded after the head of Pharaoh Kakafure), almost all the Egyptian gods, the prisoners of Abu Simbel the black peasant prisoners in the tomb of Pharaoh Horemheb, the sculpture and actual mummy of the Pharaoh Ramses II and many others.
Where they have found mummies of the ancient Pharaohs they have been black to the extent that the Europeans, and now Arabs, had to state that it was the embalming process that turned them black.
Egyptians regarded white people with low esteem. They viewed black people as the premier race as in the much publicized depiction of all races in the tomb of Sesostris I in the valley of Bibanel-Moluk at Thebes. Here we see the European as a tattooed savage, a blonde beast, dressed in animal skin, instead being at the start of all civilization.
The Egyptians were black people who came from the south. The Egyptian concept of one supreme God was taken directly from the south. The Egyptian concept of one supreme God was taken directly from the great lakes region. In all the paintings of the ancient Egyptians in all the temples, the original god of the Egyptians was Patah, who was later to become Beth. The god Beth was a Twa (pygmy) from central Africa, according to the celebrated English Historian Albert Churchward and leading Egyptologists W.E. Wallice Budge. The story of the parting of the Red Sea existed during the reign of Senefuru and we meet his chief physician and sage, Zazamanka, parting the sea to remove a lost piece of malachite.
The story of Cain and Abel exits in Egypt as a tale of two brothers in one of the oldest scripts. One of the brothers was called Bitau.
The Egyptians were also Abantu. The Egyptians had come from the south and moved northwards and established the kingdoms of Napata, Kush, Ethiopia and Kemet. The same implements used by people of the great lakes region were everyday implements of the Egyptian people. The Maasai necklaces remained the primary standard of Egyptian kings and commoners up to the Arab invasion in 637AD. The Karimajong hand stool was used in ancient Egypt as a headrest and can be seen in any museum that exhibits Egyptian implements, while Emikarabanda (wooden sandals) remain in everyday use in Egypt. The grinding stone was what the Egyptians used to make flour; the Ankole cows were the cows sacred to the Egyptians and the Egyptian goddess Isis (Auset) wife of Osiris (Ausar). The Egyptian columns of the first dynasties in the temples at Sakara were built modeled on papyrus reeds, used for the construction in the great lakes region. The step pyramid itself was modeled on the papyrus roofs of people like the Karimajong or Banyankore. The Egyptian dances are not dissimilar to Runyege or Ding Ding. Egyptian pharaohs wore Leopard and Lion skins just like the leaders in the great lakes. Remember that lions are only found in Africa. There are no lions in the Middle East or Europe. The names of the Egyptians are similar to those in the great lakes region. In fact one of the last kings of the 25th dynasty (750BC) was called Ssabataka. Buganda, Ankole and Bunyoro also buried their kings in pyramids and funerary temples similar to the pyramids of Kasubi. In one of the oldest books from ancient Egypt, The teachings of Ptah Hotep, the instructions on governance and m oral teachings were given to a man called Kagame. This name was obviously from the great lakes region.
The Egyptians traded with the people of the Lacustrine region and never forgot where they came from. One of the exchanges that took place between Ancient Egyptians was revealed in a letter that Nefer-Ka-Ra (Pepi II) wrote in about 2,370 to the head of the trade expedition Herkhuf, the land “on the edge of the world “ which was the land of the East African great lakes. The fourth expedition brought back a Twa, Mwamba (pygmy) to the pharaoh. Another Egyptian text, the tale of castaway dating from the 20th century gives precise information about the life of the sailors and economic relationships between the Nile Valley and the Red Sea. In The papyrus of Hunefer, the ancient stated categorically: “We came from the source of the Nile at the foothills of the Mountains of the Moon, in the land of the gods, where god Hapi dwells.” This location technically interpreted means Ibanda village on river Mubuku, at the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains. The land that is currently Uganda and Congo was “the land of the gods” to the Egyptians. One of Egypt’s first gods who would be adopted by the Haribu (Hebrews) was “Beth” sometimes written as “Bez”, who was a Twa (pygmy).
Churchward states: “Under the name of Tekhi, the old great mother (the Nile) was the giver of liquid and supplier of drink; as Neith, she was the suckler of crocodiles; as Isis, she was the milk-mother, and as Menat, she was the wet nurse, typical provider of plenty and primarily she was mother earth, and fundamentally related to the water source of the Egyptian inundation.” He adds: “The ancient Egyptians knew that the great lakes region in East Africa was the source of the Nile, and the cause of inundation, a statement proven by the Egyptian ritual.”
Churchward continues: “Chief of the unseen land, the hidden place. We know that they commence the entrance of the Tuat terrestrial (first division) of the tuat and first hour of the night at the delta or the mouth of the Nile and that it ended in the Island of the double cave”. That was the Island situated in the great lake, the source of the Nile-Victoria Nyanza. This was Khui land, the exit of the 12th division of the Tuat and the 12th hour of the night.
The island of the Double cave is probably the Rukwanzi island of Lake Mwitazingye the first of the two lakes mentioned. The second lake to the south is Lake Edward. The hill in question is one of the many hills that make up more than 70km of the mountains of the Moon known as the Rwenzori. However, Buvuma Island on Lake Nyanza also has the caves and the hill in question. I am not able to find the second lake around this Island.
