Ithumba Unit  August   21, 2017 Mutara’s group joined the orphans to feed on lucerne early in the morning. Wanjala had a disagreement with Karisa when he tried to take lucerne from Karisa's mouth. Karisa refused totally, prompting Wanjala to push him. Karisa walked away hoping that one day he will be able to retaliate. Out in the bush, Boromoko attempted to ride on Naseku but he was brought down by Garzi who was feeding close by. Enkikwe engaged Sirimon to a pushing game while Olsekki spent some time soil dusting as he looked forward a game with whoever won in the match between Sirimon and Enkikwe. Sirimon emerged as the winner and Olsekki jumped in to duel with him. Their game ended in a draw. Yatta and her group passed by the stockade in the morning hours and drank water to their satisfaction before heading west of the stockade.

At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by twenty wild bulls. The weather was chilly and the orphans only drank milk and water before heading back to the browsing field. Ukame settled to browse with Naseku while Boromoko played with Tusuja. Later Boromoko had a strength testing exercise with Sirimon that saw Sirimon emerge as the winner. In the evening Kamok led the way back to the stockade while Olsekki and Boromoko disagreed over something but we were not sure what it was. The disagreement ended in a fierce fight that ended when the keepers intervened by calling the two boys.
