Gorilla.CD, Innocent Mburanumwe
Bukima used to be in the Munyaga Family – but he left that group in 2007 to become a Solitary, before joining up with the Rugendo family some time in 2008. One of his brothers is Karateka, a Solitary, and another was Buhanga, who recently died.
Noel – one of the massacre survivors; he was found with a gash on his hand. I am pleased to report that he is feisty and growing by the day!
The family has 5 individuals – Bukima, Noel, Kongomani, Baseka and Lubutu – the only female. I feel confident that now that the family is established, we will soon see another little gorilla running around!
