Notes
Abraham met forty one Kishaike community members and they discussed about one member who has two wives and now they are confused who takes care of the goat. The members came up with ideas how to solve the problem, one said that if it is bringing a problem they are going to get that goat and put it into the shelter they constructed and if it gives birth to offsprings then they can give both of them to take care for offsprings. They selected a group of ladies from the group to go and talk to those women so that in the next meeting they will bring the feedback and they will come up with a final decision. The chairman told the meeting that one member is not so happy with the group because they refused to assist her when she lost her former husband. This lady was married to this man, had a son with that man, then she divorced and remarried to another man who is living in Kishaike village. Three weeks back her former husband came with some friends and they wanted to steal cows from Kishaike but bad lack he was killed in the other next village. The group members were so annoyed that they did not even go for burial. Now this lady is complaining that the members did not go to say sorry and yet they decide to help a member in a problem. Abraham told the members to talk to her so that she can attend the next meeting to solve that problem.
