MBOKOMU

African Ancestral Goddess

Also known as MOBOKOMU

Ancestral Goddess of the Ngombe

Her father AKONGO was the Top Creator God of the Ngombe. He had given up on Earth and its annoying inhabitants and retired to Heaven hoping for a quiet life. But now his daughter and children were kicking up a racket and making life unbearable once again.

So he put them all in a basket, loaded it with provisions and lowered them down to Earth. Where, no doubt, they felt quite at home.
