Nursery Unit  August   18, 2017 Ndiwa has mastered the keepers hand set radio communication very well now. These days she is always the first to arrive at the milk feeding point and the first to arrive back home in the evening. There was a bit of a delay for their 9am milk bottle this morning as Enkesha decided to sneak to the mud bath area in search of milk. When she found no one there she started crying for her milk, where upon she was found and escorted back to the forest to wait for the right time. As time passed the orphans became more impatient and started putting more pressure on the keepers to allow them to go for milk. Godoma, Mbegu, Pare, Malkia, Mteto, Maktao and Mundusi were all ready to stampede past the keepers and go to find their bottles. Ndiwa was busy browsing but next to a keeper so that her ears were fixed on his radio set. As soon as a conversation began she didnít wait for any ones permission and just went, as the keepers struggled to release only a few from those that were waiting to go and have their bottles. Ndiwa was spotted running down the path and Godoma was allowed to go with a few others. Godoma tried to catch up with Ndiwa but she didnít stand a chance.
