Voi Unit  February   13, 2014 The young orphans downed their bottles fast, racing to the copra and cubes and stuffing them down before the older orphans arrived to take over. Lesanju’s group came in and the youngsters soon left led by Mbirikani. Dabassa and Rombo engaged in a wrestling match while Naipoki and Panda decided to chase the baboons out of the compound. Mudanda continued to eat copra cake with the older orphans as she is their favourite. After finishing the copra Mzima, Tassia, Taveta and Kivuko went over to eat some Lucene at the far end of the stockade and were soon joined by the others. Having eaten their fill of the delicious grass they were led to the bush by Sinya and Dabassa. The orphans were lucky to be joined by a herd of wild elephants that stopped to greet them. The two groups browsed along side each other for almost two hours before parting ways. Lesanju and her group rumbled their goodbye and then continued feeding.
