Nursery Unit  April   11, 2016 Kauro remains the most disciplined boy during milk feeding time. Once he finishes his share he will always walk away to make space for the others. The rest can be real trouble makers though! Sirimon and Olsekki especially are two that will play tricks on the keepers to get more. Roi will keep on fighting to steal more from the wheelbarrow whilst Enkikwe is one that has to be watched by everybody, his peers and the keepers. Today during public visiting these four caused a lot of trouble. Enkikwe unfortunately managed to join the first small group of older orphans that went down and when he finished his milk he started fighting those that were still feeding, wanting to snatch their bottles. He wouldn’t even listen to the keepers and was ready to charge at them. There is no other boy that can face up to him and it is only the two older girls that can discipline him, Oltaiyoni and Siangiki. These are the only two he has any respect for. It reached a point where he charged at Sokotei, knocking him into the wheelbarrow. The bottles fell out and Roi had the chance to steal one and make off with it! The keepers pointed finger and shouts meant nothing to the naughty boy and was not until Oltaiyoni arrived that saw him leave the area. He did not leave peacefully though and went along head-butting anyone that was in his way!

Kiko has been up and down to the stockades today. He first visited at 11am as the public were lining up to attend the public visit and they all turned to take a photo of him. As they were crowding to do so Kiko left back for the bush in a hurry at the sight of so many people. He would return another 3 times during the day before returning back at 4pm when he was finally locked up in his pen for the night.
