When and how did the Mt Kenya people get Bantunised?

I am from the Bamasaaba community, also known as Bagishu, on the western and southern slopes of Mt. Elgon. Folk tales have it that we originated from Misri. That seems to be similar with the Kisii and the GEMA. How come we are Bantu and when did we lose the Cushatic characteristics? We also believe one of our great Prophet Maina, who disappeared with his wife without trace, later, he is said to have re-emerged among the Kikuyu and was made an elder there; hence the similar name there. Any ideas about these? Am obsessed with knowing anthropological trace of our origins! Please, help me!!
