Is Mekome jealous?

We have previously written about Ekendi being “best friends” with Emilie. The other day I was following Emilie in the ebuka thickets. Mama, Mekome and Ekendi were all close by. Then Emilie lay down to have a nap. Ekendi came and lay down next to her. Mekome was feeding maybe ten metres away. Emilie was sleeping on the side of one of the ebuka tunnels. I could see Mekome moving towards us. Then Mekome starts running towards Emilie and she grabs a large branch that was lying on the ground and swipes at Emilie’s head as she goes past. Emilie sits up. Ekendi sees what happens and gets up and follows Mekome. I have no idea what caused Mekome to do that, earlier on in the day she’d been charged by Kingo so it could’ve been redirected aggression; but I think she was sending Emilie a message: Stay away from my son!!!
