The Zulu God is called "uSomanlda", he felt the urge to create a world and therefore he began to shape land and water. He was immensely proud of its creation, he admired the sheer beauty of hills and rivers and was captivated by the huge size of imposing mountains and vast seas. This was a gift to the Zulu people, to use as a bounty of food and security, and in turn, the Zulu people return what was given in respect and praise.

Ibutho, the warrior kin of the Zulu were blessed with the gifts of hunting and warfare, using muthi and traditonal ornaments, they have the ability to contact their ancestors for guidance.
