9. Mbaba Mwana Waresa
This goddess is a fertility symbol to the Zulu as well as goddess of the rain, agriculture and beer.
She is widely revered in Southern Africa (some say because of the invention of beer) and the story goes that she took a mortal husband when she could not find a suitable man among the gods.
