MORIMI

African Goddess

Goddess of Bush Burning

Never mind MOSES and his burning issues, MORIMI is the real Goddess of setting the countryside on fire. She is invoked when flames are used to prepare the earth for new planting. You can imagine the health and safety issues she has to contend with. She may also have connections with military scorched-earth tactics.
