During my recent trip to Ethiopia this topic came up twice while i was conducting an interview - both concerning Imam Ahmed.

Dr. Lapiso believes that Malasay are the special body guards of Imam Ahmed, while Gesi Abdulkarim (author of Waraig Zaman) believes Malasay is the tribal name or qabila of the Harari people.

Gesi Abdulkarim argues that Gey Usu simply means 'people of the city' and 'Harari' means someone who is from the city of Harar no matter what their qabila (tribe) is.

As evidance to his argument - he quoted several places from the book "Fath al Habasha" ... where it refers to qabilat malasay. Insha'Allah I'll scan those pages and post it here.
