After spending a few days in the village of Okondja, Cola went to the Centre International de Recherches Médicales de Franceville (CIRMF) where he lived for 32 years. He spent many years with Typhen (Caroline and Tani’s mother) until 2011 when she succumbed to disease at the CIRMF. He was then integrated with Caroline and Tani. Cola is shy and easily stressed yet very charming. He has never been aggressive toward his females and, on the contrary, will defend them at any length. He has touched many people and remains in the heart of those who have been privileged to know him. Cola was transferred with Caroline and Tani to the Projet Gorille Fernan-Vaz (PGFV) on August 4th 2014.
