Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for KIHARI)
10/30/2015 - The orphans browsed their way to the middle water hole under the leadership of Kihari and Ishaq b. There was drama when Lesanju took little Mudanda to play in the mud hole, completely blocking Wasessa from reaching her. Wasessa instead concentrated on guarding Bada from being taken as well. She never thwarts Lesanju who is recognized as the main Matriarch of the group. It was, however, obviously a great relief to Wasessa when Lesanju exited the water leaving Mudanda behind who continued playing so Wasessa took the opportunity to move in and embrace both babies as her own. After all were fully satisfied with their bathing activities, they browsed nearby.
