Gonzalo Vidal wrote about THE OLDEST EUKARYOTIC CELLS in Scientific American, February, 1984 and it was also reported in 2011 in “Biological Microbiological fossils When Cells discovered Architecture,” Scientific American, June 13, 2011:
ARCHEAN EON: PROTEROZOIC ERA:
The Archean eon: 4000 – 2400 million years ago – the Proterozoic era – 3.7 – .6 billion years ago – THE EARLIEST KNOWN LIFE consisted of stromatolites and other bacteria, blue green algae, fungi, and small soft-bodied marine animals,
It was reported in 1976 Nature, volume 261, June 17, 1976 that during the Archean eon: (4000 – 2400 million years ago), the proterozoic era (3.7 – .6 billion years ago), the earliest known life consisted of stromatolites and other bacteria, blue green algae, fungi, and small soft-bodied marine animals.
700 – 570 million years ago – THE WORLD’S OLDEST ANIMAL TRACES, ANIMAL BURROWS, in the east central African basal beds in the Kitwe, Mindola north pit copperbelt, in ZAMBIA, AFRICA
1. Also, Gonzalo Vidal in The Oldest Eukaryotic cells,Scientific American, February, 1984 indicated:
2.. “During the Archean eon: (4000 – 2400 million years ago), the Proterozoic era (3.7 – .6 billion years ago), THE EARLIEST KNOWN LIFE consisted of stromatolites and other bacteria, blue green algae, fungi, and small soft-bodied marine animals, with THE OLDEST KNOWN FOSSIL CELLS having been discovered in THE FIG TREE CHERT OF SOUTH AFRICA about 3.5 billion years ago
It was during the so-called proterozoic Edicarian pre-Cambrian era (700 – 570 million years ago), evidence, of the world’s oldest animal traces, animal burrows, in the east central African basal beds in the Kitwe, Mindola north pit copperbelt, in ZAMBIA, AFRICA, that were some 300 million years older than the previously oldest known fauna, the late proterozoic Edicara (Edicarian hills in south Australia) fauna. Despite the fact that this evidence of metazoan life in east central Africa, was considerably older than imprints of animal fossils found in the Edicara, Australia fauna, the pre-cambrian geological period of time even today continues to be named the “Edicarian period” rather than the “Zambian period,” in most scholastic journals and scientific and high school/college level textbooks whenever the pre-cambrian period of time is discussed.
The oldest known fossil cells were discovered in THE FIG TREE CHERT OF SOUTH AFRICA about 3.5 billion years ago. Fossilized multicellular organisms in proterozoic rocks (benthic prokaryotes) did not make their first appearance until almost three billion years or so of the planet’s formation and were found in NAMIBIA, SOUTH AFRICA.”

6. Fossilized multicellular organisms in Proterozoic rocks (benthic prokaryotes) did not make their first appearance until almost three billion years or so of the planet’s formation and were found in NAMIBIA, SOUTH AFRICA.
H. Clemmet, Department of Earth Sciences, Leeds University, Leeds, England, found TRACES OF FOSSILIZED MULTICELLULAR ORGANISMS in late proterozoic rocks in NAMIBIA, SOUTH AFRICA,and it was reported in the 1976 Nature, volume 261, June 17, 1976, p. 576 about THE WORLD’S OLDEST ANIMAL TRACES,” citing Glaessner, M. F., in Bulletin Geol. Soc. Am., 82, 509-514 (1971), p. 577
In 1945 the Australian geologistR. C. Sprigg had discovered numerous imprints of primitive aquatic animals, including jellyfish, various kinds of worms and possibly sponges, in the sandstone beds of the Edicara Hills in south Australia belonging to the late Proterozoic era. Both R. C. Sprigg’s 1945 findings and G. Gurich’s were reported by Gonzalo Vidal, in “The Oldest Eukaryotic Cells,” Scientific American, February, 1984, and he indicated that THE VERY FIRST CONVINCING EVIDENCE OF PRE-CAMBRIAN ANIMAL LIFE had been found in 1930 by the German paleontologist G. Gurich.
Joseph Campbell in Volume II: The Way of the Seeded Earth, Part I, AThe Sacrifice, in The Historical Atlas Of World Mythology indicated:

THE MIGRATING AFRICAN TRIBES THAT BECAME THE “AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES”:
“Africa, we now know, was the cradle of the human race. It was thus from Africa that the earliest hunting populations of Europe were derived, and from Africa, as well, that the regions eastward, along the Tropic of Cancer (Spain, France), were first entered and explored. During the final glacial age (the Würm, c. 50,000-8,000 B.C. when there was so much of the Earth’s water locked in glacial ice that the oceans were 300 to 400 feet lower than today; so that BERINGLAND IN THE NORTH and, IN THE SOUTH, SAHULLAND AND SUNDALAND, lay exposed) THE MIGRATING TRIBES ENTERED WHAT ARE NOW AUSTRALIA AND NEW GUINEA (AND MUCH LATER ENTERED AMERICA) were without exception hunters–as are THE ABORIGINAL AUSTRALIANS to this day.”

Namibia (/nəˈmɪbiə/, /næˈ-/), officially the Republic of Namibia (German: About this sound Republik Namibia (help·info); Afrikaans: Republiek van Namibië), and formerly German South-West Africa and then South West Africa, is A COUNTRY IN SOUTHERN AFRICA WHOSE WESTERN BORDER IS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. IT SHARES LAND BORDERS WITH ZAMBIA and Angola to the north, Botswana to the east and SOUTH AFRICA TO THE SOUTH and east. Although it does not border Zimbabwe, less than 200 metres of the Zambezi River (essentially a small bulge in Botswana to achieve a Botswana/Zambia micro-border) separates them at their closest points. It gained independence from South Africa on 21 March 1990, following the Namibian War of Independence. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek. Namibia is a member state of the United Nations (UN), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Commonwealth of Nations.
The dry lands of Namibia were INHABITED SINCE EARLY TIMES BY SAN, Damara, and Namaqua, and SINCE ABOUT THE 14TH CENTURY AD BY IMMIGRATING BANTU who came with the Bantu expansion. Most of the territory BECAME A GERMAN IMPERIAL PROTECTORATE IN 1884 AND REMAINED A GERMAN COLONY UNTIL THE END OF WORLD WAR I. In 1920, the League of Nations mandated the country to South Africa, which imposed its laws and, from 1948, its apartheid policy. The port of Walvis Bay and the offshore Penguin Islands had been annexed by the Cape Colony under the British crown by 1878 and had become an integral part of the new Union of South Africa at its creation in 1910.
ZAMBIA: “The Republic of Zambia /ˈzæmbiə/ is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, neighbouring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and NAMIBIA TO THE SOUTH, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, in the south-central part of Zambia. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest, the core economic hubs of the country.
ORIGINALLY INHABITED BY KHOISAN PEOPLES, the region was affected by the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. AFTER VISITS BY EUROPEAN EXPLORERS IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY, ZAMBIA BECAME THE BRITISH PROTECTORATE OF NORTHERN RHODESIA towards the end of the nineteenth century. For most of the colonial period, Zambia was governed by an administration appointed from London with the advice of the BRITISH SOUTH AFRICA COMPANY.
ON 24 OCTOBER 1964, ZAMBIA BECAME INDEPENDENT OF THE UNITED KINGDOM … in 1991, beginning a period of social-economic growth and government decentralisation. LEVY MWANAWASA, CHILUBA’S CHOSEN SUCCESSOR, PRESIDED OVER ZAMBIA FROM JANUARY 2002 UNTIL HIS DEATH IN AUGUST 2008, AND IS CREDITED WITH CAMPAIGNS TO REDUCE CORRUPTION AND INCREASE THE STANDARD OF LIVING.
IN 2010, THE WORLD BANK NAMED ZAMBIA one of the world’s fastest economically reformed countries. The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) is headquartered in Lusaka.
