Mbaba Mwana Waresa

by Dr Anthony E. Smart
Mbaba Mwana Waresa is a beloved goddess of the Zulu people of Southern Africa, primarily because she gave them the gift of beer. She is the goddess of the rainbow, rain, harvest, and agriculture. The story of her search for a husband is well-known, and recently appeared in a beautifully illustrated children's book.
