"Somali travellers identified the island for gold from the 13th century, prior to the Portuguese. Their transient continue to be afterwards ended in a bloody conflict acknowledged by the Somalis as “Dagaal Diig Badaaney” in 1424."

Somalis and the Portuguese,we've been fighting each other across the Indian ocean/ Somali Peninsula (Mozambique was also a Gold colony for the SOMALIS).

Such mighty history of the Somalis, oh how we have fallen :meles:
