My response:

It is always fun to read "comments" like that above. What it supposed to
mean? Would you kindly present here a "frequency" of the CMH "in modern
Jewish population"? Please enlighten us here.

My response:

:-)))

What else can I say?

Sure, a small group of Jewish men found their way some 625 years ago and
contacted the Lemba. However, it is not the Lemba "original story". Neither
it is a story that Mr. Tudor Parfitt from the University of London has been
telling for the last 12 years or so.
