Adyumba people

The Adyumba or Adjumba are an ethnic group in Gabon. They live mainly near Lake Azingo and in the Middle Ogooué River in the west coast of the country. They belong to the Myènè people and also speak the Myènè language of the Bantu languages. Their neighbors include the Mpongwe people (who they were historically considered a clan of[1]) and the Nkomi people.[2] Today most live by fishing, food crops and small businesses.
