Luthuli(VEM129) was born in the Elveera mob on January 8, 2008 to dominant female Jo Jo Hello. His father's identity is not certain, but is assumed to be Teabag. Luthuli's litter-mates were Sobukwe(VEF127), Sisulu(VEM128), Tutu(VEM126) and VEP130; a month after birth, VEP130 was predated while foraging with the gang. Luthuli grew up to be a subordinate male under the dominant male Teabag. Sadly in February 2009 Sobukwe was bitten by a puff adder and died soon after, and to make matters worse signs of tuberculosis began to emerge within the Elveera. Jo Jo Hello died due to the disease and Chibuku Scud became the new dominant female. In August 2009 the Elveera split and all the remaining members, including Teabag, Chibuku Scud, Vidy and Mika, died due to the TB infection. The latter part of the splinter has never been found, and was considered Last Seen in the same year. Luthuli and his litter-mate Tutu were in the splinter which disappeared, leading to the assumption that they too are probably deceased, but could be alive in a wild group. Ash, Gijima and Mr. Scruff are the only known survivors of the tuberculosis outbreak considering they left to rove before the gang contracted the deadly disease.
