Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   14, 2017 The orphans left headed towards Umani Hill as they left the stockade compound this morning. Some baboons decided to try and follow the group coming up behind Alamaya and Mwashoti. Mwashoti was not happy to have the baboons behind him and made his feelings known to Sonje and Murera. Murera responded by charging around the bushes, chasing the baboons away and up into the trees. Her actions attracted the attention of some of the other orphans who also started charging around. When Murera felt that the baboons had been satisfactorily chased away she tried to calm some of the others. Zongoloni and Faraja seemed particularly excited and did not listen to Murera. Sonje came to assist her co-matriarch and managed to get all the orphans to stop charging around and calm down so that they could continue with the day’s activities.
