    Mheshimiwa your results....


    Maasai? Samburu? Taita? () she is Maasai


    Judging by the background looks like a diaspora Ethiopian. (×)


    Difficult one, maybe Kamba? (×)


    Rendille? (×) close


    She seems to be dressed like a Muslim but she could be from any of the ethnicities in question. Too difficult..Pass..


    I know she's Rwandan () it seems most people guessed this one correctly.... some Rwandans do have a distinct look...


    Taita? Maybe Maasai/Samburu?? Too hard. (×)


    Could be Swahili or maybe Eritrean so none of the above??

    Without further ado here are their correct ethnicities in the correct order (I've included additional photos that reveal a little more of their features). Many of you were able to identify their general ethnic backgrounds; I.e, cushitic, nilotic admixture, etc...

    1.
    Maasai different angle

    2.
    Samburu different angle

    3.
    Rendille all grown up

    4.
    Same Samburu as above - different age

    5.
    Rwandan without head cover

    6.
    Rwandan without wig and light filter

    7.
    Kikuyu with her natural hair and no makeup

    8.
    Kikuyu without braids and Asian outfit

    That was hard! At least I got 2 of them right.
    The first chick pic had something Nilotic about her, mainly her facial bone structure.

    Rendille is a Cushitic language closely related to Somali and most of these Samburu girls look like “Samburu-ized” Rendilles.

    The Rendille themselves have admixed alot from the videos of them I have seen so they are no longer pure Horners like the Somalis but that girl definently can pass as Horner.However my prediction was still correct, none of them were actual horners.
