African - A tyrant with magic powers. His magic powers were derived from his father, a jinnee, who could be killed only with an arrow pointed with a cockerel's spur. He killed Sunjata's brothers and usurped the kingdom. When Sunjata's sister, Nyakhaleng, discovered the secret of the magic, Sunjata was able to kill the jinnee and Sumangurur lost his powers, changing into a bird which flew away leaving Sunjata in control of his kingdom. In some references, called Sumangurur.
