Zimbabwe is not south africa. Its a less developed country and i hardly believe kids had a TV, let alone they know of V and Star Trek.

according to journalist Cynthia Hind. This was witnessed by 62 schoolchildren, who had little or no exposure to TV or popular press accounts of UFOs. Cynthia Hind interviewed them the day after the encounter and made them draw pictures of what they had seen.
This still makes me laugh and feel anger towards her quote. I know it's Africa but come on The late Cynthia Hind being a great researcher in the UFO field talking BS by saying little or no exposure. I remember watching V, Star Trek, Battlestar Gallactica, Star Wars etc etc etc back in the 70's & 80's.
General consensus is that the Ummoism was an elaborate hoax. The culprit (or culprits) is unknown, but a José Luis Jordán Peña has claimed responsibility for instigating Ummoism. However, there are still a few small groups of devotees, such as "a strange Bolivian cult called the Daughters of Ummo". Another group, which claims a more scientific approach to the question of whether Ummo is a hoax or not, has set up a website in which one can find the materials on which is based the Ummo story, and some analysis of this documentation (ummo-sciences.org). One person of this group claims to have understood the fundamentals of the language of UMMO, which is present in the texts in the form of what we would call words or sometimes expressions . He contends that the structure of their language is inherently different from the structure of any language on Earth, and has published a book on the subject.
