Southern Cushites

Southern Cushites were the second earliest inhabitants in the Kenyan (and East African) region after the indigenous Bushman hunter-gatherer groups. Groups such as the Dahalo and Iraqw (or Mbulu) progressively displaced in a southerly direction and/or absorbed by incoming Nilotic and Bantu groups until they wound up in Tanzania. Consequent to these movements, there are no longer any Southern Cushites left in Kenya.
