I too find that the present boundaries create problems for all Africans. But I also think that each case is unique. For example, my ancestral Buja falls sqaurely in Zimbabwe. I doubt that anyone would want to see Buja cecede, we are proud to be Zimbabweans. We are also proud of our unique culture, as are the Manyika, Tonga, Shangani, Ndebele etc. But the Manyika are split between Zimbabwe and Mozambique, and we have enclaves of Venda, Tswana. The point I am making is that each nation has its own border issues, and some are luckier than others.
I have more questions for you- Are you aware of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples' Organisation?
What practical steps are you taking to achieve nationhood anyway, given that you are not going to get it given on a platter?
And thirdly, you speak of a Kingdom of Lado. Is there a King? Of what family is he? The Sudannic Royal bloodline is spread all over Africa, this is known. For example, through various distaff lineages, I can find an ancient ruler named Mushavaka ( Shabaka, brother of Tirhaka) and a woman named Shanakdakete or something like that. Off-shoots of this lineage dispersed all over Africa and married in to many houses. I would not be surprised if DNA tests showed even the Arab king of Morocco to be descended from Sudan.
If there is a continuing Lado monarchy, why it would be to Africa what Houses such as Coburg-Saxe-Gothe and Schwelsig-Holstein-Glickberg are to Europe.
Finally, are there any websites etc that I may also view?
