Nursery Unit  August   19, 2017 There are some babies in particular who are very attached and trusting of their human family; Jotto is one such boy. In the morning as soon as the orphans had arrived in the forest, he was hanging around the keepers when Malima joined him and he engaged her in a game. They started playing a ‘hide and seek’ sort of game, running around and hiding in the bushes. Their game went on and they went deeper into the bushes, just as the keepers moved to go and check on some of the other orphans that were browsing. When Jotto returned from his game the keepers were not where he had left them and he ran all over looking for them but in vain. He started to yell and he ran back to the stockades. Malima ran behind him as if to calm him down but he didn’t pay any attention to her and he just kept running and crying out. The keepers came to see what was happening and called his name as they saw him running far down the path. He turned and came running back to them, pretending as if nothing was wrong!

Ndiwa took Ngilai, Malkia and Sana Sana with her when she decided to sneak down early for milk today- they had their milk with the young ones and left altogether as well; sometimes when one of the orphans wants to do something naughty they will involve others as well so they do not get in trouble!


Jotto loves his human family
