Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for ISHANGA)
6/16/2016 - Chaimu, Kilaguni and Ishanga in the company of three wild bulls reported at the stockade early before dawn and relaxed outside the stockade until day break. Soon after the orphans were let out, Chaimu tried to block their way but the keepers intervened and told her to move out of the way. The bulls settled for water and left immediately after drinking enough. The Ex Orphans then showed up at the stockade compound. Laragai, who is always at loggerheads with Mwende for some unknown reason, surprised Mwende as he was passing by. Mwende was quick to turn to defend himself but quit when he saw Garzi approaching since he knew the two orphans would gang up against him. Shukuru kept herself busy soil dusting soon after she had enough of lucerne. Garzi engaged Bomani in a light strength testing exercise and thereafter moved to play with Mwende. Bomani moved to tackle Ishanga but Ishanga didn’t want to entertain him and so pushed Bomani away. Teleki had a brief moment of interacting with Orok but moved away when Orok tried to push him. Orwa spent sometime engaging Mwende in a pushing game and later engaged Ishanga in a strength testing exercise which he lost moments later.
