Ithumba Unit  July   8, 2017 The orphans left the stockade in a jovial mood and as soon as they settled for lucerne, they were joined by Mutara and her group. Kithaka and Barsilinga had a fight when Kithaka tried to take what Barsilinga thought belonged to him. The conflict ended into a sparing contest which came to an end when Mutara intervened by separating the two boys. An hour later, Mutara and her group left while Shukuru led her herd to Kone area where they were joined by Galana, Gawa, Loijuk and Ishanga. Gawa played with Enkikwe and later tried to charge at the keepers while Boromoko took sometime off from feeding to play with Tusuja.

At eleven o'clock in the morning, Galana and her small group escorted the juniors to the mud bath where they were joined by Ex Orphan bull Rapsu in the company of four wild elephants. After mud bath, the orphans headed to Kanziku area leaving the Ex Orphans and the wild elephants still at the mud bath. Later in the day, Shukuru took a break from feeding to participate in a soil dusting exercise while Enkikwe invited Sirimon to a strength testing exercise that ended in a draw.
