This was a primordial Giant who created man from the mythology of the people of the Congo. Shamans who invoked him in initiations state that he has the appearance of a chieftain of the forests. He appeared through the power of magic at the beginning of time. He vomited all the animals of the world from his mouth. He saw the animals realised that they needed to be looked after. So he vomited again and spewed out humans.
