Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   4, 2017 It began raining heavily in the night, when babies were deep in their sleep. Alamaya and Mwashoti then heard their roof making a lot of noise and got up very quickly, not sure of what was happening on their roof. Mwashoti screamed loudly which Murera and Sonje worried about what was happening to them, and the keepers came to see why they were shouting so loudly. Lima Lima and Quanza pushed their gates to try and see what was wrong, and Ziwa with his friends Faraja and Ngasha also pushed their gates, which had just recently been repaired. In the morning when the orphans came out of their night stockades, the matriarchs Murera and Sonje patted Alamaya and Mwashoti’s bellies with their trunks to comfort them as they walked out to the forest.
