Mbekure Ndekerei

KopeLion, MbekureMbekure is new to the KopeLion team as of the spring of 2016. He was a very traditional Maasai, coming from Ngidokun, a remote and lesses known part of Ngorongoro Conservation Area. When Mbekure began with KopeLion, he spoke very little (Ki)Swahili and he had never held a pen or pencil! With the guidance of other Ilchokuti, Mbekure can now write several words and can even use a GPS unit. Although Mbekure is new to the team, we are confident he has the potential to protect any lions that wander into his zone and spread KopeLion’s mission throughout his community.

Area: Ngidokun zone
