Ithumba Unit  October   27, 2017 It was a quiet and peaceful morning when the orphans left and settled for lucerne where they were joined by several Ex Orphans. Lemoyian started his day's activities by scratching on the nearby rocks while Boromoko and Tusuja settled for a strength testing exercise that came to an abrupt end when Kithaka intervened by pushing the two boys away. Kithaka is one amongst four orphans that are off milk and considering themselves as grownups; anytime they might quit the human family and join their friends in the wild. It's not clear whether Lemoyian, who came down at the same time with Barsilinga and Kithaka, will be willing to join them or remain behind to enjoy the pushing games he really loves playing with his fellow boys. Only time will tell what will happen. After their game was disrupted by Lemoyian, Boromoko moved to play with Olsekki as Lemoyian went to try his luck with Enkikwe. Enkikwe was not willing to participate in a pushing game with Lemoyian since he knew he would lose. Naisula joined the orphan herd out in the bush and had a great time with Ukame. They browsed together and soil dusted before Naisula escorted the juniors to mud bath. As the orphans were drinking water at the mud bath water trough, Karisa was forced to have a cold bath when without warning, Lemoyian came up from behind and pushed him into the water. The weather was chilly and the orphans returned back to the browsing field soon after having their milk and water.
