Knowing that you are from Anambra makes me sad because you behave like a lost ffool. You don't have the slightest intelligence to deciphere who is who and the underground game the north is playing. The north doesn't need to plant a mole within you , they know with ddummies like you half of their job is done....lmao

And, stop beating drums of war, please. Your doom is that you are yet to under Igbo politics in contrast with Nigeria's.

@ help me tell the young man. He is living in one glorious ideal paradise. Point which idealist that has ever achieved anything meaningful.


The people who understands how things work are realist.


Achieve even put it in a more eloquent English that I can master...."The impatient idealist says: 'Give me a place to stand and I shall move the earth.' But such a place does not exist. We all have to stand on the earth itself and go with her at her pace"


He is a realist and some kind of dumb idealist.

I didnt denigrate anybody but I will not stand by and watch some nonentities defame and ridicule the elegant and beautiful culture of Omanbala people. That will not happen. Lately, some people from southern Igbo areas have been working very hard at tarnishing the image of Nri. They want to divide Anambra buy squaring Awka vs Nri online squabbles and I will not let that happen. Anambra people practice a near homogeneous culture excluding towns like Umunze etc.


I hope you know that Omanbala isn’t the native spelling of Anambra.

So you don’t need to erroneously use Omambala in place of Anambra to sound more like a true nwafor.

So you don’t need to erroneously use Omambala in place of Anambra to sound more like a super-duper Igbotic nwafor. It’s Anambra, not anything else.

The name Anambra was a corruption of Omanbala.

You sure it wasn’t just derived from Anam river?

No , this is an open knowledge.

"There are several myths & mysteries surrounding Omambala which lead to different interpretations by many tribes and nationalities, hence the mispronounciation of Omambala as Anambra by the earlier European explorers."

I think its actually from Anam-branch, later reduced to just Anambra.

Exactly.

The name Anam-Branch would suggest that it was the Europeans who named the river, since 'branch' no be our language. This immediately raises two questions. One, does it mean the river had no native name before the Europeans came? If it had a native name, then what was it?

Second question, if the name was Anam-Branch, why is it that even the earliest European records from the 19th century still recorded the name of the river as Amambara or Anambara? The Europeans named it Anam-Branch and still corrupted the name by themselves in the same century? Highly implausible.

Also bear in mind that the river actually has its source in Igalaland, around Ankpa, from where it flows through Olamabolo, Igalamela/Odolu, Ibaji and finally through parts of Igboland before joining the Niger above Onitsha. And the Igala call it Omabolo or Imabolo, which is very clearly their own variation of the Igbo name Omambala. The Igbo who dwell in the valley of the river know that its name is Omambala and that Anambara/Anambra is an European corruption.

Is there a colonial write up that made reference to this name, Anam-branch ?
