WHERE ALL BANTU SPEAKERS, AT ONE POINT IN TIME NIGERIANS. THINGS YOU NEVER LEARN by Kenyans247(1): Fri 03, July, 2020 01:56am


The Bantu Migration which ensued during a wave of expansion that began 4,000 to 5,000 years ago, Bantu-speaking populations – today some 310 million people – gradually left their original homeland of West-Central Africa which is present-day south of the Niger river - Nigeria and the Cameroons. On one hand you have a theory that it was all due to a population expansion brought about by a switch from foraging to settled agriculture. This would seem to imply that the Bantu had an advantage over other Southern groups in the competition for food, that a growing population required more land which led to another outward push, culturally absorbing aboriginal groups for the expansion to be completed.
Historians suggest the reason for the Bantu migration may be any one or more of the following :
exhaustion of local resources - agricultural land, grazing lands, and forests, overpopulation, famine, epidemics, increased competition for local resources. warfare between rival tribes or as a consequence of succession disputes, climate change affecting crops.

They migrated to the Eastern and Southern regions of the continent which emcompasses nations such as Rwanda, Burundi, Angola, South africa while the second wave expanded further to Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania etc.
Speakers of the original proto-Bantu language group began a millennia-long series of migrations eastward and southward. This agricultural Bantu expansion is suggested to have played a significant role in populating the Sub-Saharan region, an area where Bantu peoples now constitute a dominant population element.
