MYTHOLOGY – THE BUNYORO GODDESS MULWINDA

UgandaMULWINDA – The goddess who protected the royal clan. Each of the 46 clans of Bunyoro had its own protective deity. They each also had their own totem-name which could be an animal, e.g. Kiroko (hippopotamus) or a plant, e.g. Bulo (millet), a utensil, e.g. Kaibo (basket), or a part of the body, e.g. Amara (stomach). No one was allowed to marry a member of their own clan except the royal clan. Kings could only marry their own cousins and it is known that several married their sisters. Mulindwa was said to be a half-sister to the god Ndaula.
