Voi Unit  February   7, 2014 Ishaq-B, Naipoki and Kihari are steering clear of Panda, Mbirikani and Mudanda. Naipoki wants to be the leader of this young group, while Panda, who started the group long before Naipoki’s trio arrived, knows she is the leader of the team.
After about 15 minutes of having breakfast in peace, the orphans were rudely interrupted by the ex orphans who marched into the stockade majestically and started eating the copra cake. After finishing it, the ex-orphans mingled with the orphans and Thoma and Wasessa started sizing each other up to see who was Mudanda’s favourite. Thoma always tries, but fails, to take little Mudanda from Wasessa. This morning a chasing and wrestling bout ensued but when little Mudanda saw that her Wasessa might be defeated by Thoma, she ran forward and stood between the two and stopped any further combat. Wasessa snatched the opportunity and walked off with Mudanda to join Sally and Emily’s calf playing near the water hole. Wasessa and Lesanju then led the orphans up the hill to browse whilst Ndara led Emily’s group to the bush further down. Browsing was followed by wallowing at the water hole where they were joined by Icholta, Laikipia and the rest of the ex orphans. Lolokwe, Icholta, Mweya, and Seraa entertained everyone with beautiful wallowing styles and Mzima, Rombo, Layoni, Tassia, Taveta and Dabassa had great fun wallowing with their big friends.

Naipoki leads the way to the bush
