Ruhanga features in Bantu mythology as the remote creator and sky-God, recognised among the Bahuma, the Nyoro, the Tooro, the Chiga, the Bambwa, the Banyoro, and the Ankore. The Bahuma further recognise him as the arbiter of life, sickness, and death. However, unlike creator figures in other religious systems, Ruhanga is generally not a focus of worship. Ruhanga is also considered to be the founder of the Batembuzi dynasty of the Kingdom of Kitara. The Empire of Kitara (also known as Bachwezi, Bacwezi, or Chwezi empire) is a strong part of oral tradition in the area of the Great Lakes of Africa, including the modern countries of Uganda, northern Tanzania, eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Burundi.
