Short description: God in African Mythology

Akongo is a Creator God in African mythology. He is worshipped by the Ngombe people of the Congo.[1]

The Christian faith and non-Christian religions explains that Akongo "is not impersonal, like Mana: indeed the people make a clear distinction between the latter and Akongo himself...on the other hand, he is not universally benevolent".[2]

According to legend, Akongo originally lived with people, but left because they were constantly fighting.[3][4]

His daughter, Mbokomu, caused trouble in heaven so he lowered her down to earth in a basket with her two children. She was the ancestor of all people.[5]
