Nasiib Buundo: A forgotten Somali Bantu anti-colonial leader.

Ache Makangila Ache Zamani aka Nasib Bundo, was the first Somali man to seek for freedom or libaration for a Somali region.

He frequently visited several countries in the region, specially Zanzibar, where he met the rulers of Zanzibar, including the Sultan.

In this photo, King Nasib Bundo had just returned from a visit to Zanzibar in 1911, where he sought a support for full independence for his country, Goshaland or Jubbaland.

Late in the 19th century, Egypt, Zanzibar, Italy, and Britain recognized this haven (Jubbaland) as an independent entity. In that period King Nasib Bundo was the ruler of Goshaland.

King Nasib Bundo was later on arrested by the Italian forces, since he opposed the western colonial powers, who favoured the nomad Somalis during their stay in Somalia.

King Nasib Bundo died in the Italian prison and its believed that he was poisoned by the colonial powers and the Somali mercenaries.
