He’s the Top God of the Xhosa people somewhere in the eastern cape of South Africa. He is also known as – or occasionally the son of – Thixo.
There is not much to say about him; the Xhosa don’t trouble about his godly attributes and he doesn’t seem inclined to reveal anything. Qamatha worshipers are basically worshiping a giant blurry question mark. Nobody knows anything about him and nobody really cares either. What a wonderful contrast to the arguments and schisms of other religions we could mention.
So if you’re looking for a decent omnipotent deity but aren’t too fussy about the details, Qamatha could be the one for you. Just drop a pebble on one of the many sacred piles dotted around and he’s yours. Maybe. Nobody knows for sure. Particularly not the Xhosa.
