My money's on the Ngoni

That's them. My African history is mostly lost to lazy brain cell activity. A significant passage in that article:

In 1897, with over 4,000 warriors, Mpezeni [warrior-king of one of the largest Ngoni groups] rose up against the British, who were taking control of Nyasaland and North-Eastern Rhodesia, and was defeated. Mpezeni signed the treaty which allowed him to rule as Paramount Chief of the Ngoni in Zambia's Eastern Province and Malawi's Mchinji district. His successors as chief take the title Paramount Chief Mpezeni to this day.[5]

The cruelty and ruthlessness of Mpezeni's raids can be understood from this account written by a British hunter who came across a Chewa village a few hours after a raid in 1897:

On my arrival I found the male population all under arms, and the women crying. A raiding party of Mpezeni’s people had attacked them suddenly that morning. Ten women were killed in the gardens and twenty-two were taken away as prisoners. An old man and one of the headman’s children had been severely wounded. Their entrails hung out of frightfully torn wounds, inflicted most likely by barbed spears. It was a pitiful sight — the groans of the wounded, the women crying over their dead, whose bodies were brought from the gardens, the men standing about helplessly and depressed.


No doubt that this sort of activity is regarded by the likes of the Senegalese woman above as being in the spirit of traditional culture. The racist British simply didn't understand that, and must now pay reparations to the Ngoni.
 
Surely if we were all 'equal' there would have been African explorers poking around Britain finding the source of the River Thames, and naming it after African rulers?

Aaah yes, their special programs on educating the Europeans on how to row galleys or work as sex slaves.

The white slave trade that is so often mentioned, and carried about as a massive chip on white shoulders?
