Ra,Re. Ancient Words Ra,Re,Ptah, Ta,Pa,Se largely resonate in Bantu languages for word FATHER and sometimes used to endow respect to men of dignity and Deities. The word for father in the Southern-Soto-Tswana-Bantu language is given as Ra, re, rarae and even rara. Thus Re kglo means the great father or the great chief. In ancient Egyptian’s polytheistic beliefs, Ra was worshiped as the creator God by most blacks at Heliopolis and along the Nile valley. These followers believed that Ra was self-created, while other followers of Ptah or Ta believed that Ra was created by Ptah. In a passage of the Book of the Dead, Ra cuts himself, and his blood transforms into two intellectual personifications: Hu, or authority, and Sia/se, or mind. Ra is also accredited with the creation of the seasons, months, plants, and animals.In later Egyptian dynastic times, Ra was merged with the god Horus, as Re-Horakhty (“Ra, who is Horus of the Two Horizons”) term vaguely remain in southern Africa as Re kglo. He was believed to rule in all parts of the created world: the sky, the earth, and the underworld. The Sotho,Xhosa and Tswana people use terms Ra, and Re to confer ultimate respect to male figures and leaders. Love Re-ra-ta or Rerato means Love in southern Africa Bantu languages.Love was associated with the divine so the perfect word for the feeling was to combine all words known that described the all seeing God Ra.
Amun-Ra,MN-R,Amen-Ra,ImanRa =imanrwa=imandwa=imanrwanda=Imana,EMANRWA which translates God Amun Ra – was Egyptian sun God; supreme God of the universe in whom Amen and Ra were merged;also principal deity during Theban supremacy. Amun or Amen is mentioned in the Bible as the utmost. (Rev. 3;14-15.)
Ancient Tutsi’s worshiped Amun-Ra.The mispronunciation of Amun-ra by Bantus and San/Twa people of east and central Africa metamorphosed the word into Imanarwa or imandwa and later to IMANA Y’IRWANDA. It remained Imana even after European introduction of christianity into the central African region.People adjusted in thier way of worship to suit to the new religion but with similar reverence and unchanged esteem to Imana.., note that Christianity too applies term AMEN at every end of every prayer said! suggesting that western religion is subliminally rooted in ancient African worship of Amen Ra.
In central African RWANDA, to Ra-ta or rata is to exalt with pride usually used with a prefix Ku-rata .In precolonial Rwanda,men applied Ra in introductions to fellow men and still use it today though now it applies to women as well. i.e Bite se ra? (note SE and Ra) meaning how is it exaltable one or the high one.Ngwino Ra-ta or ngwino rata! (Come here devine one/lovely one). Se also is kinyarwanda word for Father i.e Se wacu meaning our father. Se wabo -their father
Egyptian Gods (Ancient African Gods)
Ra – The Sun God, the one who was there at the beginning. Amun – the Father of life who later combined with Ra to become Amun-Ra the all important State God. Osisris, Isis, Seth & Nephthys came from the Creation of the Universe. Ptah created Heaven and Earth. Sekhmet was the Wife of Ptah.
Seth murdered his Brother Osiris by cutting him into many pieces and then threw them in various corners of Africa and threw his penis in the Nile which was later eaten by a Nile perch! (the mainstream version of this story tries to make these Gods primitive and ignorant of the rest of Africa and the world thus seclude the entire story to mostly lower Egypt and Egyptian desert and bottom-line try to dismiss the story as a myth passed down by ancient primitives disregarding the continuity and legacy left behind in form of physical objects and a cult of spirituality) Nephthys was Sister and Wife to Seth.Seth in Bantu is SATA.It means tornado. Isis was Osiris‘ Sister and Wife and some time after his death was able to revive him long enough to conceive Horus. Osiris was chosen to judge dead mortals before they can proceed to Heaven. He sits in judgement as their heart is put in the balance against a feather of Goddess Maat, who stands for truth.The story of Jesus is sometimes thought to be that of Osiris or son Horus. Horus – a Falcon, avenged his Father Osiris.Horus in Bantu/ Kirundi is Hora or Horera which means avenger,savior,redeemer or avenge Thoth was given the Moon and appointed assistant to the Sun God, Ra.He deals with seasons emotions and knowledge. Isis together with Anubis and Thoth were able to reassemble the previously dismembered parts of the body of Osiris, added a phallus (the original having been eaten by a Nile perch), wrapped it in bandages and thereby created the first Mummy and conceived Horus. Hathor, the Goddess of Love, Joy and Music is sometimes interpreted as Isis. Her symbol is exclusively a Watusi cow.
(These names are Greco for purposes of western pronunciation and de-Africanization.Originally they appear in consonants only)
Rwandans and Burundians traditionally worship and summon a combination of God AmunRa, Hathor (a cow Goddess) and Osiris as Ra-Ngombe (ngombe is another term for Cow and underworld where Osiris is widely believed to partly rule) Godess Sekhmet is traditionally worshiped and summoned as NYABINGI or NYABINGHI in Rwanda and Uganda.A sect of Rastafarians with a non-violent principle also summon and praise Nyabinghi. In Uganda during colonial wars against Europeans, the exiled wife of Rwanda king Rwabugiri,Queen MUHUMUZA used NYABINGI powers to fight colonial aggressors and performed miracles by shapeshifting and passing through hard rocks.Queen Muhumuza was banished from native Rwanda by Jealousy Kanjogera,Rwabuguri’s other famous wife.Similarly, a Ugandan warrior remembered as KIBUKA OMUMBALE during Buganda against Bunyoro wars,used Sekhmet/Nyabingi powers to defeat enemies by attacking them from the sky without visible evidence of aid by aircraft or wings.He was eventually captured and castrated.People believed his powers lay in his private parts.His private parts are on display at the Ugandan museum.His remains were enshrined at Mbaale ( now known as Mpigi) and he became the Guardian of War. His temple was desecrated by the British and the contents, including his jawbone, were put on display in a museum in Cambridge.The phenomenon or ability to levitate and defy gravity and even conduct air travel on a Mat to far away distances was well known among Some African groups long before western discovery of Aerodynamics!It was done by the Cwezi and was still practiced by the people of Gisaka (Kibungo) in Rwanda and Karagwe until the late 1980s. Goddess SEKHMET is the warrior Goddess as well as Goddess of healing for sub Saharan Africa and wife of Ptah. She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the ancients of the Nile valley. It was said that her breath formed the desert. She was seen as the protector of kingdoms and lands and led kings and soldiers during warfare.It is possible that her persona is that of Godess Oya among the Yoruba people.
Goddess ISIS is associated with mother Earth and also queen of queens and a holy virgin female entity.A model of perfection.The word for Earth in source of the Nile Bantu dialects is ISI,or ENSI, and SIA or ASIA in other tribes.When the Earth shakes it is called MSIS remember the Greeks liked to add letter “S” at end of most words they found.So mother ISIS was originally known as Mother ISI.or Mama w’ISI/mama w’ensi.Term “Ensi,Isi,Isin” is also noticeable in Sumerian tablets in description of Earth and kingly domains. ISIS was a divine and physical personification of mother Earth.Mary in Christianity is to a certain extent a plagiarism of this pre historic aspect. If Jesus lived,he was of Falasha tribe of Ethiopia who was most probably a reincarnation of Horus or a fabrication by the Greeks and Romans from stories that Africa had. Jesus is stated in John 1 4:6 that; no one comes to the father unless they passed through him, which is similarly heard of Horus as the only way and truth to his Father Osiris and to Heaven.And if Jesus truly lived,he was born at Dendera in Egypt where his parents had moved to and lived. A place that could be the original Bethlehem.Dendera means House of Bread a surprising coincidence with Bethlehem in Israel meaning house of Bread.Mostly Biblical scholars have never agreed as to where Bethlehem is located yet Dendera is an actual place with all its prehistoric evidence still intact.Both spots (modern Bethlehem and Dendera) lay in the expanse and area which was under Roman control during the time of Jesus.Similar accounts of Jesus like stories are heard among the Baganda people of Uganda in their spiritual tradition when citing an ancient man called KIWANUKA a major spiritual figure in Buganda traditional beliefs and worship.Kiwanuka is said to have been a great healer and miracle performer,walked on water and possessed supernatural powers.Was this mysterious figure Kiwanuka, Jesus himself?! who might have fled Dendera to the source of the Nile area via Lake Tana during Roman rule of North Africa? Kiwanuka means the descended from above in Luganda.
In Luganda language Spoken in Buganda Kingdom, Se-bo is word used to honor a Man.Sebo from God Seb/Geb.Ancient nile valley God of Earth. Ptah-Ptah or TaTa means Father in Luganda sebo tata-(godly father)- expression was passed down generations from time of greater Pharaonic influence over Bantu Africa thousands of years ago which is expressed for utmost respect for god,or earthly father or any good great man worthy of respect. In ancient Nubia Ptah or Ta was the patron deity of craftsmanship,architecture, metalworking, carpenters, shipbuilders, and sculpture. From the middle Kingdom onwards, he was one of five major Egyptian gods with Ra, Isis, Osiris and Amun. The Baganda summoned ptah(sometimes in other local names) in tomb constructions,fortifications and boat building and canoe carvings for sailing on lake Victoria and along the Nile.
In Buganda kingdom the Baganda people use word KABAKA to address their king with honor. This word remained in Uganda when ancient Ethiopic King of Egypt CHABAKA or SHABAKA ruled from Egypt between (721 BC-707/706 BC) and extended his influence into sub Saharan Africa. Chabaka was also known as Shabataka and the same word is still used today by the Baganda people to address to their king, which they pronounce as SABATAKA.It means King of people.KABAKA also means a Falcon/Eagle in Kirundi.Sakabaka semuganza bicu. This sentence means ”Falcon king of birds dweller of higher horizons”. In ancient Egypt a Falcon is a symbol of power,wisdom and symbol of God Ra and Horus or Hora or Horera.To horera in Kirundi is to avenge.Remember Horus was immaculately born to avenge his father Osiris who was murdered by his brother Seth.A Falcon/Eagle is also symbol of power among the Basinga (a Tutsi sub clan) of Rwanda.
The current King of Buganda is known as SABATAKA KABAKA MUWENDA MUTEBI II.
Ancient Baganda would have addressed him as SHABATAKA CHABAKA MUWENDA MUTEBI II. The Baganda also bury their Kings in shrine Tombs and their Kings wear head regalia with striking similarities to those of Egyptian Pharaohs.
BA . . The ba can best be described as someone’s essence/ personality it takes a form of a bird with a head of a person in ancient depiction. Like a person’s body, each ba was an individual. It entered a person’s body with the breath of life and it left at the time of death. The ba is associated with divinity and power. It had the ability to take on different forms, in this respect the gods had many bas. The ba of the deceased is able to move freely between the underworld and the physical world. The ba is similar to the ka. Ba is added on Ntu to form Bantu for Human beings.It transforms differently with collectives and singularities.BA can become KA,MU,WA,U,V in singulars and plurals or describing beings or things non Human i.e Muntu,Wantu,Kantu,Kintu,Bantu,Wanyama,Ubuntu,Vitu. Ancient Egyptians believed that a person had several entities.A person’s spiritual couterpart was Ka.Another important element was the name of a person which determined his destiny.There was also the shadow.Only the enlightened being could travel in the shadow and beyond.
HOR-AHA or HORAHA was a son of Nama commonly known as Narmer the first ruler and unifier of Egypt. Nama can refer to animal-like or meat in Bantu lingua suggesting that pharaoh Nama or Narmer ruled fiercely which explains his success with unification of upper and lower Egypt. Horaha or Horaho means dwell forever in Kinyarwanda.
Giza-means darkness in Swahili. Giza also is pronounced Gisa or kisa in different Bantu cultures. One of the ancient demi god’s name was Gisa.
The word for LAW in Kinyarwanda,Kiganda,Kirundi is Amaateka/Maateka from word MA’AT/MAAT the Godess of Truth and Justice. Amaateka or Amaategeko is a Bantu way of describing the observance and fulfillment of MA’AT’s laws and principles or Common law,rules and regulations in society.
Maateka/Maat was wife of TUHUT/THT/TWAHUT/TAHUTI or Thoth (Greek) who helped her in maintenance of universe and balance of truth and justice.
Toth was one of ancient Gods who was regarded as One, self-begotten, and self-created. He was the master of both physical and moral ( Divine) law, making proper use of Ma’at. He is credited with making the calculations for the establishment of the heavens, stars, Earth,and everything in them. Compare this to how his feminine counterpart, Ma’at was the force which maintained the Universe.He is said to direct the motions of the heavenly bodies. Without his words, the ancients believed, the Gods would not exist.His power was unlimited in the otherworld and rivaled that of Ra and Osiris.He was present during creation of man as adviser and in naming of creatures.Legend of these Gods is not caste in a time period of just 4000 years ago but millions of years.The Twa/Hutu/Tutsi first alphabets form his name.The three human prototypes of the Nile Source are the master tribes of all humanity on Earth.
The ancients credited him as the author and pioneer of all works of science, religion, philosophy, and magic.
Natron:was Egyptian word for salt must been conceptualized from word Nater or even neteru.A crystalline substance or compound used to preserve the mummies in 3 ways:
- Dried the moisture in the flesh thereby inhibiting the growth of bacteria.
- Removed moisture-filled fat cells.
- Served as a microbial disinfectant.
Most of the salt used for embalming Pharoah’s dead bodies was specifically mined from lake Natron in Tanzania because the Egyptians found it the only lake to contain the most preservative with highest pH than anywhere else.Its alkalinity was found by Egyptians to contain other natural minerals that flow from surrounding hills and it was a special kind of salt for mummifying compared to other salts.Some salt was mined from Ethiopian Afar depression and west African Taghaza mostly for embalming commoners.
Term SEMA. .. means..to speak or speech in ancient Egyptian. It means the same thing in Swahili. As a hieroglyph it has a symbol which represents the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt. Other symbols are often added to further illustrate unification. It is sometimes bound together with two plants, the papyrus and the lotus. The papyrus represents Lower Egypt and the lotus represents Upper Egypt.
MAJ,MAYA,MAZI,MEZI-Means Water in ancient Egyptian and similar in todays Bantu languages.
Grinding grains using Stones
The Practice of grinding Grains on stone as was in prehistoric Egypt is maintained today in sub Saharan Africa. A grindstone and a stone mortar are ordinary house hold tools. Grind stones are used to grind millet, corn, sorghum, nuts, dry herbs and pepper In Ancient Egyptian artifacts depictions of grinding grain using stone can be found suggesting that ancient Egyptian culture was largely black African.
NKh – is ancient name for Cow in ancient Nubia and Kush.Also has a cross symbol with semicircular horns on top representing Life. (aNKH). The Ankh symbol is both a cow sign (with it’s right and left ears stretched horizontally and circular horns on top) and a woman’s fallopian tube; a fertile part and symbol of life.From ancient esoteric knowledge a Watusi cow is symbolically a divine animal.
in Rwanda the name for cow is iNKha/iNKa. In south Sudan the DINKA people who are a cattle raring tribe are also named after the cow.”D-INKA” Among most modern African Bantu tribes,Rwandan dialect (Kinyarwanda & Kirundi) are among modern Afrikan languages (apart from Beja language in Sudan and other west African dialects) that have the biggest percentage of words traceable to archaic Egyptian and old Egyptian language .This keeps the theory of the Tutsi’s, Fulani, Oromites and Puntites interconnectedness with ancient Egypt and Kush alive.Or whether they were part of the group assigned to care for and guard the Congo and Nile river sources,cater for Gold,Salt,herbs and food produce or had an exodus to the interior of Africa following foreign invasions from Eurasia or possibly part of the Nomadic and adventurous groups that spread across Africa and Asia.The Beja people are known as Bega in Rwanda and a secondary class of royal ethnicity. Initially, We learn that a cow was associated with deities during pre-dynastic Egypt,Mesopotamia and Indus. In mesopotamia, word eNKi/Enki which is closely related to “iNKa” is name of one of creator Gods of the Anunaki group largely believed to have created MAN in his image. ENKI is thought to be what Christians know as Elohim. The cow is venerated amongst Masai,Hima Herero,Sidama,Fulani and Tutsi cultures. Cow or a Bull was a representation of God Hapi or Apis or Hapis-inkh (note the ‘inkh’ at the end of Hapis!) who served as an intermediary between humans and an all-powerful God (originally Ptah (Ta), later Osiris, then Atum).The Romans twisted this to serapis and adopted it in their mythology.
The Bantu name for RAMESSES is RUMEZA. Bantu name for KAMOSE (1554-1549 BC) is KAMASA which means young Bull. Some called Ramesses.. RUMEZAMIRYANGO or Papa Rumeza meaning father Rumeza as in Pa Ramessu. Name came from the founding Pharoah of the 19th dynasty ancient Egypt around 1295-1290 BC.
Upon throne he became known as MNFTR RMZ according to hieroglyphs. These letters interpreted in source of the Nile Bantu dialects is Manifatira Rumeza. In archaic Egyptian,letters MN and R indicate attachment to God. Letter “Z” was frequently used in place of letter “S”.Rumeza means “the mighty one who gives life” and Manifatira means -“upheld by strength of God”. The English wrote the name as “MENEPHTYRE to favor western pronunciation, and called him Ramses or Ramose. The Ramesess name was carried on by 10 more successive Kings through to 20th dynasty starting from Ramsess II the great.
Ancient Egyptian and Kushitic domains extended deep in sub Saharan Africa than previously recorded by scholars. Pharoanic influences particularly around the mountains of the moon ( mt Rwenzori,mt.Kilimanjaro,mt.Muhabura,mt.Nyiragongo,mt.Elgon) is described in Ugandan oral legend as Tembuzi era in 11 century BC a possible latter continuation from Sumerian influence of the area for a time period of over 60,000 years when Sumerian Kings EnmenLuana and Dumuzi or Tembuzi peacefully ruled Africa during antiquity.The two kings are the only known on record as ancient Humanoids to ever live the longest. During 11th Century BC Egyptian Rumeza or Pharaoh Ramesess ( difficult to pinpoint which Ramesess among the 11 kings of 19th and 20th century Egyptian dynasties wielded that influence over Uganda and Rwanda) was described as remarkable among the Batembuzi leadership. The Batembuzi also are what Shona legend call Lozvi,lozi,Dlozi In Zulu, DLOZI means ancestor and LOZI means Magic or paranormal people in other Bantu dialects .The Lozvi was term by indigenous Bantu Zimbabwe initially describing Kemetic outpost governors overseeing Gold mining and control of Natural reservations such as wild Animals,medicinal herbs..and Metaphysical monitorings. Descendants of these Egyptian remnants became elite Lozi of famous Rozvi empire who went on to rule the great Zimbabwe until 1834.
MUNOMOTAPA (Empire of Monomotapa,Motepa,Mnumtlapa.MnHotep)
Right around the time of the great Egyptian and Kushitic era, in the North, Munomotapa empire thrived in southern Africa. Monomotapa began around 16 century BC even prior! than it is officially recorded in mainstream Books! and was a major area where Gold was sourced and mined for supply to Kush,Nubia and Egypt.Many North Africans traveled this far including the Numidians (who were black) to trade. Name Monomotapa is Bantu for MNMHTP commonly known as AMENHOTEP by Egyptologists.Suggesting that either Amenhotep I,II,III or IV( Akhenaton) had influence over bronze age Bantus and San people of southern Africa.
Also Munomotapa word came from locals referring to AMENHOTEP as MUNTU-MTLAPA,MUNTUMTAPA, MN+TU=Man in God’s image. MTLAPA=Holy,clean,praisable.Peaceful. To Tlapa is to bath or clean oneself in Setswana language. AMENHOTEP =praise AMUN=Holly is Amun,clean is AMUN,Peaceful is Amen.MN=God. Kings of that time are largely known as God’s Kings in African culture and were believed to be demi gods. It is possible that the great Zimbabwe walls were constructed under Amenhotep IV’s command to serve as shrines for his newly monotheistic religion of worship of Ra or Aten locals in southern Africa especially the Kalanga and Tswana still use word Ra to bestow respect to men.Southern Africa Bantus pronounced AMENMHOTEP as Menomhotepa.or Munomotapa.Western scholars distorted and misled many on this story by making Munomotapa very recent and crediting visible monuments left behind to Portuguese and Arabs or foreign figures like King Solomon which is absurd.
AmenHotep in 1510 BC was known NTARE in Uganda during Tembuzi era (not to be confused by 19th century King Ntare of Ankole and King Ntare of Burundi Kingdom).Amenhotep dynasty exercised dominion from Cairo to Swaziland.
TUTANKHMUN OR KING TUT
Pharoah Tut was a Tutsi as per his name and phrenology. His name comes from consonants TTNKMN or TT/NKh/MN (tt=tutsi,teta…nkh=Cow..mn=God) which in Kinyarwanda stands for Teta/nkah/imana…(Tetankayimana) or Tutsinkayimana. It means: Hail cow of God or royal cow of God or Hail the living God or divine cow of God.
so King Tut’s name in Bantu is Tetankayimana.
In most interpretations of what was found written by archaic Egyptians on papyrus and pyramid walls,19th century Euro-centric scholars and tomb raiders corrupted and twisted VOWELS to de-Africanize the findings in the glyphs. The twisting of interpretations began during hellenistic period when Macedonian Greeks invaded and took over Egypt for over 250 years followed by Romans.The same happened to the interpretations of what was deciphered off Sumerian Tablets.The Sumerian writings reveal an entirely Bantu civilization in the middle East and Asia.
From the Sumerian King list,Bantu names like; Lugara Banda,Zambia,Imana Luanda,Dumuzi,Balulu,Lugalungu,Lugalure,Inanna (inyana) ,Inkayiyashi (Inkishush,Inkicutse,inkicuc),Ruhoranimpundu or Lugalanyimpundu, Kubaba,Ganda,Sisulu ,Ubara Tutu e.t.c, .. ring a bell as to which ancestors these people were.
Ancient African Culture and civilizations extended beyond the current continental lines to what is now Pakistan,Iran,Georgia,Turkey,Iraq,Saudi Arabia,Syria,Israel and Italy and all these places were occupied by Negroid races prior to the birth,expansion and rise of the Caucasians.Sumeria and Mohenjo Daro were absolute Nilo Bantu civilizations with dark skinned semi-divine kings and Gods.
*It is important to note that other African peoples classified as non Bantu also lived in Kemet and influenced its culture.There are many other ancient Kemetic etymologies that are equally echoed among west Africans and the Horn of Africans today.
