Ithumba Unit  May   21, 2017 We woke to a stressful morning after Karisa, Dupotto and Kelelari failed to turn up overnight and the search for them continues. Only Olare and her group arrived during the night and slept just outside the stockade compound. Soon after the orphans were let out, Olare’s group joined the juniors and escorted them to the browsing field. The orphans settled to browse on the eastern side of Ithumba. A little while later Olare’s group left them again. It was a dull day as everyone tuned their mind to locate the lost babies. The search was intensified in all directions but still there were no signs of the new babies. At mud bath time, Yatta, Mulika, Galena and Narok’s groups were in attendance. The only group that was not seen was Mutara and her friends. Meibai played with Narok as Wiva assigned herself the sole responsibility of taking care of Kama. After mud bath, the Ex Orphans headed towards the eastern side of Ithumba Hill while Kamok led the juniors to the Kanziku area where they settled to browse throughout the remaining part of the day. The search of the three new babies still yielded nothing and was called off at dark when the visibility became poor.
