Dinka - History and Cultural Relations

Scholars continue to disagree about the origin of the Dinka, although there is a general consensus that they have inhabited their present country for at least 400 years, if not longer. Indeed, pictographs in temples of ancient Egypt depict cattle with striking resemblances to cattle today. Questions about the origin of the Dinka are best prefaced by questions about the origin of domesticated cattle in Africa south of the Sahara. Culturally, the Dinka are most like the neighboring Nuer and Atuot.

Dinak are said to have been migrating from Israel some 5,000 years back through Egypt, stayed there and later trekked to Sudan, is it true?
If true, are they Jews origins?
