This is the pre-Dynastic era. The Naqada period. Before that other groups came but ultimately they are not what led to the Dynastic era. I suggest this group eventually took control, which probably wasn't too hard maybe even welcomed to some degree, and became the leadership that led to the formation of the Dynastic period and that the "honeymoon ended" in the 2nd Dynasty. For a time which is what "Troubles with the 2nd Dynasty" is all about.

How could Mesopotamian cultural influence have come from South Africa? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you.
