Kiswahili is the language of the first inhabitant of Africa or the Bantu . Around 25,000 years ago, the Bantu began a series of migrations eastward from their homeland between West Africa and Central Africa, at the border of eastern Nigeria and Cameroon. This Bantu expansion first introduced Bantu to central, southern, and south-eastern Africa. The Bantu are mainly united under the mother tongue of Kiswahili.
If you plan to live, work, or travel in any of these areas, some knowledge of Kiswahili will help you communicate the way you want to.
The Bantu Leadership Programme helps to prepare hundreds of business people, charity workers, and students for life and work throughout Africa.
Our curriculum is designed to enable learners to begin speaking Swahili with the people they encounter from the first day. First an adaptable greeting formula is taught, then introductions, and so on. Each lesson aims to equip students for conversations they are likely to encounter. This is extremely important. It is also very difficult for adults who have become accustomed to learning more readily through reading than through hearing.
Each lesson is divided into two sessions. In these two sessions learners are introduced to new vocabulary and grammar by illustrations and simple explanations in Swahili or English. At the end of each lesson a vocabulary list containing new words found in sample dialogues is provided. Following these instruction sessions, students disperse into practice groups of 3-5 students with a native-speaking tutor assigned to each group. Various grammar patterns are drilled until responses become automatic in order to help learners to speak the language naturally and correctly without first having to think of grammar rules and how to put the different parts of a sentence together. These drilling sessions also provide an opportunity for students to ask further questions and clear up misunderstandings.
The long-term course is designed for learners who wish to speak and write Kiswahili properly within a short amount of time. These courses are offered once each year and last approximately 9 months each. The textbooks have sixty lessons that have been arranged so that they may be completed in this time. The lessons are designed to equip each student with all the grammar and vocabulary needed for speaking and writing correct Kiswahili.
In a typical day class periods are from 5pm to 7pm every Monday and Wednesday of the week. In all session grammar and new vocabulary are taught in the classroom by experienced practitioners. The following sessions are spent practicing the new material in small groups with well trained language facilitators. This is also the time when students can ask questions and clear up misunderstandings of grammar and syntax.
All courses are taught in English.
The short course is a concentrated language program, designed for beginners or people with some knowledge of Swahili. The short course uses the same text as the long course, and learners can work at their own pace through the lessons. For those people who have a limited amount of time, or who have some basic Kiswahili training already.
All courses are taught in English.
We are currently developing our early year language provisions. Children from 5 to 11 year of age will be able to enrol.
Initiation sheds illumination upon certain subjects which otherwise may not be thoroughly understood and appreciated. Central to initiation is our deep understanding of transformation of energies.
To ‘initiate’ means to begin a process of deeper understanding of something. Initiation is a ceremony, usually a group action, in which true knowledge is transmitted to an aspirant which will produce great positive changes in him. Once initiated, the aspirant will never be the same again. When an initiation is real, is true, it is a turning point in the aspirant’s life. There is a before and after about the initiation, because something has occurred in this ceremony which has changed your life in a spectacular way, something you will never be able to forget. Now you will never again go back to being what you had been before. For the rest of your life you will remain focused on the goal of being a force of good.
Mathematics is the window throughout the whole world is seen. It has both an inherent logic and beauty while also providing the structure and models from which meta-physicists, physicists, chemists, biologists, medics, engineers, economists and social scientists build an understanding of our world and construct the tools to improve our lives.
In mathematics, we look for important connections with other disciplines that may inspire interesting and useful mathematics, and where innovative mathematical reasoning may lead to new insights and applications. Our research group focuses on Group Theory; Inverse Problems, Fuzzy Set Theory, Fluid mechanic and areas of physical applied mathematics
The absence of barriers between Initiation and mathematics and the strong encouragement of links between them is a distinctive and crucial feature of our research culture. We believe that the cross fertilisation this enables produces a more creative and productive environment and opens each area to the ideas and approaches of the other. It is this unique approach in research that defines Bantu-Leadership.
Our school has made major advances in each of the following areas. We’ve developed a theoretical framework to describe the movement of early human. Our work in migration focuses on enlightening the public on the origin of ancient Egyptian.
Dispersal Theory provides a variety of useful mathematical techniques, such as continuum equations for collective motion and Inverse Problem a deeper understanding of the wave equation. The study of the wave equation is an important active area of the school. For example, we know from initiation that the study of human is equivalent to the study of fluid.
The link (between human and fluid) is essential to formulate the path of early human. Despite centuries of research in migration, we have been led to believe that the people of west-central Africa originate from Egypt. New evidence and research establish the contrary.
A fundamental challenge is to derive the migration path using our understanding of the wave equation. On a far larger scale, we have also been remarkably successful in unravelling the path of the early inhabitant of west-central Africa.
Sometimes there are no words to describe it, the inner knowing is enough. It is a feeling in your heart, your soul. It just feels right. Trust your intuition, to take a step that could very well transform your whole life.

The Department Currently Has About 7 Grand Master, Including Many Who Have Received The Highest Distinctions In Initiation Or Mathematics. The School Is Led By Ta’a Tadie Tsemo Who Is An Accomplished Mathematician And Grand Noble Master From The Kingdom Of Bayangam.
The Initiation Ritual Is Performed By A Grand Noble Master Free Of Charge And In All Circumstances The Initiate Must Agree To Visit The Kingdom Of Bayangam.
The Language faculty consists of outstanding language practitioners with extensive experience teaching Kiswahili at many community schools.
