Voi Unit  February   1, 2014 The Orphans started their day with a heavy breakfast of milk, copra cake and dairy cubes. Naipoki, Panda, Mbirikani, Mudanda, Ishaq-B and Kihari were the first to arrive followed by Kenia and her team. The older orphans led by Lesanju arrived next for the copra and afterwards they all played. Dabassa and Kivuko, usually sworn enemies, engaged in a charging and strength tasting game that took almost ten minutes and for the first time Dabassa emerged the winner. Kenia and Ndii had a good time looking after Mudanda, going for a walk around the compound while her guardians Wasessa and Lesanju had their breakfast.
The orphans spent most of the morning hours browsing at the foot of Msinga hill. At noon, the milk dependent orphans, led by Naipoki, went to have their midday feed before being joined by Lesanju’s team for wallowing in the waterhole. They had a quick bath and afterwards Sinya led them back to browse, with Mbirikani later leading everyone back to the night stockades.
