Est. Date of birth 1989


My name is Tumbo and I arrived at Ngamba in 1998. When I first arrived I was kind of sick and had a very bloated stomach which is how I got my name. Tumbo means ‘stomach’ in Swahili. I have always had silver hair all around my face making me look older and quite distinguished so I have since earned the nickname ‘The Diplomat’. Despite my large size and high rank, I am usually gentle and calm, further lending to my nickname.
