LIBANZA

Bangala and Upoto Creator God

Creator God of the Earth and Moon

As a Creator God he felt it was time for the people of the Earth and Moon to pay homage to him in Heaven.

The Moonies flocked there without delay and were rewarded with immortality. So when the moon dies it is re-born straight away.

But the Earthlings lingered, dawdled, got lost, stopped off for picnics or went on a pub crawl. They all arrived disgustingly late and were most disrespectful. So they were rewarded with death.

But Libanza did relent a bit, and if you lead a good life he might well let you into Heaven after death. We have no reports as to how the Moon folk are getting on.
