Ambundu Thunder God

Thundering Hero Twin

Sudika-mbambi and Kabundungulu are miraculous thundering twin brothers. They were formed ready to go — and go they did, destroying demons, mangling monsters and mating with witches.

Their most perilous adventure was invading the Underworld and carrying off two daughters of the Underworld King. After much dispute over who was to marry which witch, they set up separate strongholds, one in the East and one in the West.

The noise of rolling thunder is the sound of them calling to each other across the sky. No need for cellphones.
