Rural or Urban Africans: Who Is Better Off

Once upon a time, not all that long ago, a new academic pastime came to be – the study of the mythological beliefs of our ancient ancestors. Mythology was simple. Mythology was fiction, full stop. It was just a collection of folklore and legends, fairytales and tall tales. It was entertainment for our ancestral masses, featuring gods and goddesses, demigods and heroes, villains and monsters, hardships, quests, impossible tasks of all sorts and sometimes true love too.
