The Gonga or Kefoid languages belong to the Afro-Asiatic family and are spoken in Ethiopia. These days, the Kafacho (southwestern Ethiopia), Shekkacho (Southwestern Ethiopia), Boro Shinasha (Northwestern Ethiopia), Anfillo (Western Ethiopia) mainly are speakers of the language. The people were living together some 400 years before and because of different social, environmental, economic and political factors they disintegrated by migrating to their respective place of this time.[2]
