Random information on the term “SOFA”:

Sofa is a Mandinka term for slave soldiers who served in the army of the Mali Empire. Sofas would also fight, in varying capacities, in the armies of later Mandé states such as the Bamana and Wassoulou empires.

The word sofa translates into English as “father of the horse” (“so” means horse, and “fa” means “father”) or “guardian of the horse”. This term stems from the original function of the sofa as a caretaker for the horse or horses of Mandinka cavalry commanders called “farari”.

Sofas make their first appearance in oral and written records during the formation of the Mali Empire. Sofas were recruited from “jonow” (slaves) captured in battle or bought from afar. They could be depended on in most instances for obedience, since their livelihood depended entirely on their master. The institution of slavery in the Mali Empire heavily rewarded loyalty, and jonow could rise to civil or military positions of prominence. Jonow became part of their master’s clan, and were often freed after a certain amount of years.
