AKONGO

Ngombe Creator God

A somewhat irritated Creator God

An all-powerful and benevolent deity, he created humans and tried to live on Earth with them in harmony. But it was no use. All the ceaseless bickering and discontent proved too much.

So he climbed the rope back to Heaven and pulled it up after him, hoping to get a little peace and quiet. Only to find that his daughter Mbokomu was just as irritating. It isn’t easy being a God.
