Ithumba Unit  July   10, 2017 Soon after leaving the stockade, the orphans were joined by Yatta, Nasalot, Yetu, Teleki, Orwa, Bomani, Vuria and Narok. The Ex Orphans shared lucerne with the orphans and left shortly later. The dependent orphans, led by Shukuru, headed to Kone area where they settled to browse. It was a clear-sky day with a hot sun but the orphans went on with their browsing activities undeterred. Wanjala settled to feed with Roi while Ukame and Galla teamed up with Shukuru. Enkikwe and Sirimon had a brief strength testing exercise that ended soon when Garzi intervened by pushing both of them away. At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by Tomboi, Buchuma and six wild bulls. Soon after mud bath, Lemoyian spent some time playing with Boromoko while Shukuru, Naseku and Wanjala settled for soil dusting. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse at the western side of the Ithumba Hill. In the evening the temperature was still high and the orphans passed by mud bath againto cool off on their way back to the stockade.
