UMJ 4 turned up on Ebay in March 2009. The seller reckoned it was by a Tanzanian band. Not having heard it and without any further supporting evidence, he may be right.

Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris supplied details of UMJ 002 in April 2011, which appears to be by the members of Mbarake Mwinshehe’s band who carried on after his death in 1979, as well as MAA 001 by a band that also recorded for Mlima. It can’t be coincidence that Orch Volcano recorded for that label too.
