The Shirazi history is a complicated story of origins and bloodlines. Why Shirazi ? The only detailed history we have is of the Sultan of Kilwa who emigrated from Shiraz in Persia in the 11th Century and had seven sons, settling them in different parts of the coast, including Mafia (Kisimani Mafia, and later Kua), so becoming a mini-colonist with a self-styled Sultanate. Kilwa thrived as a seaport and was instrumental in the growth of gold and ivory trading of Azania in the 14th Century. Kilwa became the most important entrepot in the Indian Ocean before a combination of events, culminating in the overrunning of the beautiful old town in Kilwa in the 1800s, by the Zimba, a cannibal tribe, thought to have come from central Africa.
