Mukunga M'bura

African - A rainbow-god of the Kikuyu. When he found a boy grazing cattle on his field, the god swallowed the cattle and all the tribe except for the boy who, when he grew up, sought out Mukunga M'bura, proposing to kill him. The god persuaded the boy merely to cut a small hole in his finger, whereupon the people that the god had swallowed emerged. Later the boy returned and killed Mukunga M'bura and one of the god's legs fell into a pond. When the boy looked for the leg, it had disappeared but the cattle that the god had swallowed were in the pond. Also known as Mukunga M'bura.
