    It is sure that this people are going to the direction of Shingani or (Bilaajo Carab) , becouse behind them it is visible the building of (Fiisho Goferno) or the early ( XARUBTA BOBOLKA BANADIR), and they are walking in the garden close to URUBA HOTEL.
    They look more likely Yamany as they are dressed,and with them there are some XAMARDAYE peple. They probably came from some SIYAARO held in HAMAR WEYNE.

    Those people are the descents of the famous 11 brothers of Al- Bafadal, and some Al -Amoudi and Al-Shariefs or Asharaaf.
    They lived in the district of Shingani/Banadir of the capital city of Somalia Mogadishu .

    The legend says that there where 11 brothers (also called by the name of Al-Amir or in somali language reer Awo Mireh of Al-Bafadal)

    Those people owned the coastline of (Mogadischu) and where rich and powerful merchants.
    Also Among them where also some Islamic scholars/thinkers.
    More over one of the Al-Bafadal one of them was the minister of the Omani sultan Barqash Bin Said.
    After the Italian invasion the Italians took the the power and robed there castles/houses and properties.
    Until this day the descendants Al-Bafadal & Al-Amoudi live in diaspora (spreaded as refugees in countries like the Middle-east /Europe /and the rest of the world.)
