I could imagine that this FAR means for some just FOR, so then it would mean RASTA FOR I... maybe.
As far as I checked it, only Binghies use Bongo as title. I do not think this has an biblical or ethiopian root... maybe it comes from Maroon times. Sometimes this Bongo becomes a Congo, like Congo Rock in Shashamane.

One meaning of the word bongo is a large dreadlocks. I think when an Idren is called Bongo, it usually means that he is an Elder RasTafarI that trods the ancient ways.
