My impressions so far: Braukamper's scholarship is impressive but flawed by his obvious bias against the capabilities of the Somali and Oromo nation, dismissing the possibility of their great works being of their own hand and imagining various antecedents who must have built the ruins, fortresses and monuments of Somali and Oromo lands.

I have not, I will do so. According to this book, Barentuma Oromo was originally divided between Humbanna Barentuma (true Oromo) and "Oromized" Somalis, Hadiyas and Gurages (Afran Qallo, Wallo, Ittu and Arsi Oromo). Humbanna is the smallest Barentu clan.
