Zulu and Xhosa Creator God
Also known as Unkul
Wise and Wonderful God apart from communication problems
His parents were the Creator Gods Umvelinqangi and Uthlanga who created him out of reeds, gave him a good upbringing and made him aware of his responsibilities.
Pretty soon in his career, he decided to bestow immortality upon mankind, and sent a chameleon down with the good news. “Dear Mankind. Am giving you the Gift of Immortality. Hope this fits in with your needs. Best regards, Unkul. R.S.V.P”
Unfortunately the bearer of this important message was delayed on the way and mankind didn’t get to hear of it until far too late. Expecting a simple thank-you at the very least, Uncle Unkul was a bit narked and changed his mind. He sent a lizard with an entirely different message instead.
This lizard didn’t waste any time and got there first. So mankind was presented with their fate. “Dear Mankind. I don’t like you any more. Drop dead. Best regards, Unkul.”
Apart from this unfortunate glitch, Unkulunkulu was a wise and helpful God who did his best to produce a welfare state.
