Who’s yo daddy? Could be Nshongi or Mishaya or Kakono but most likely the blackback Bweza.
Who’s yo mama? Bwiruka
Surprise, surprise; all along it has been a wonder as to how Bwiruka has been a hit among the men-folk and was, as yet, without child. Well it turns out that there’s been a bun in her oven and proof of the pudding has come forth.
As the first of the baby gorillas born to the family since our trackers made its acquaintance, they expressed their gratitude by naming the child Ninsiima, immediately.
Since this bundle of joy came along, there has been a windfall of gorilla births and many new-borns and infants have since been sighted.
