The "Ark of the Covenant" of the Lemba people

from the BBC:

...Colonial officials originally put the vessel on display at a museum in Bulawayo.

It was last photographed in 1949, but during the war of independence it was hurriedly taken to Harare with other artefacts for their protection.

It was forgotten about in the move and the Lemba people thought their sacred relic had been lost....

The Lemba people claim to be part of the Jewish diaspora...many went to Ethiopia, but others traveled southward.

And DNA studies confirm a Semetic link.
