Bantu Migration
The Bantu expansion is the name for a postulated major series of migrations or expansions of the original proto-Bantu language speaking group,[1][2] from its origins in modern day Cameroon (Central Africa) across much of sub-Sahara Africa, where it dominated over and displaced pre-existing hunter-gatherers and tribespeople. The primary evidence for this expansion is linguistic - the languages spoken across Sub-Equatorial Africa are remarkably similar to each other, suggesting the common cultural origin of their original speakers. The linguistic core of the Bantu family of languages, a branch of the Niger–Congo language family, was located in the adjoining regions of Cameroon and Nigeria

Ggulu
Ggulu is a character in the Gandan creation myth. He is the creator of all things in heaven. The Legend[edit] In the legend, two of Ggulu's daughters discover Kintu, the first human being according to Gandan myth. When Kintu declines to follow the daughters to heaven, they tell Ggulu who promptly tells his son to steal Kintu's cow, his only source of nutrition. When Kintu is brought to heaven by Nambi, Ggulu's daughter, Ggulu tests him by ordering Kintu to eat ten thousand meals to prove that he is a man. Kintu secretly disposes of the food into a hidden cavern and Mugulu tests him yet again. When Kintu succeeds in the second test of cutting stones, through the use of a magical bronze axe, Ggulu orders Kintu to fetch him a bucket of dew to drink. Kintu is able to do this as the bucket itself has magical powers
