Timan Naidoso

KopeLion, TimanIn another life when he was a young Morani, Timan killed nine lions. His hunting success has given him a high status and level of respect within his community, making him a pivotal member of KopeLion. When Timan started with KopeLion in 2014, he barely spoke any (Ki)Swahili. As Timan grows with KopeLion, he helps us stop lion hunts (his favorite part of his job), while we try to teach him a few words here and there. He is nearly conversant now!
