Having already given birth to two ‘miracle babies’, Thembi in 2015 and Colin in 2017, Thandi delighted the Kariega Field Guides again in April 2019 when she was spotted with her third, adorable little baby.
The new addition to Thandi’s family has been named Mthetho, which means 'justice' in the local isiXhosa language. This is significant as Thandi gave birth to Mthetho in the same week as members of the notorious Ndlovo gang were each given 25 year jail terms. The Ndlovu gang have been responsible for many poaching incidents in the Eastern Cape, and quite possibly responsible for the poaching of Thandi herself.
