David and Steven were in bukudumira village to follow up on the borehole contributions as well as encouraging those that had not yet paid their contributions so that they could get to pay.In that village the Kibo staff found when the water users they had already raised 250000 shillings towards their borehole account. The Kibo staff advised those that had not paid to pay so that the village would add on what they had .Because the village agreed to pay 370000 shillings as their borehole contributions . The borehole in this village has got issues with its pipes , head assembly and the cylinder . Therefore when David and Steven met some of the committee members during the corse of the meeting ,David emphasized so much about everyone getting to pay more especially those who had not yet paid and also continued encouraging the community to continue working together .Because the committee members raised a concern complaining about some members who never wanted to pay their borehole contributions. They decided and all agreed to organize the village for a-general meeting which will be intended to encourage everyone taking part towards the borehole full ownership and responsibility. However David ,Steven and some committee members they decided to replace the treasurer who was not serving well with some members from the village they thought would be reaching out every one ,serving them more effectively . Since it was a Friday, some of the village residents were heading for their juma Friday prayers but the Kibo staff noted one good thing from that village .Because that day it was a Friday most moslems were heading into the different mosques,some members decided to spare some of their time first for the water short meeting since some of them were members on the borehole committee . That showed the Kibo staff the unity ,love and cooperation in that village as far as the development is concerned. Due to the limited time factor and some of the residents heading for their Friday prayers the Kibo staff briefly outlined on the sanitation side about sanitation improvements and facility maintenance which will be required for every home in the village .In general according to David and Steven,s sanitation assessments ,there was no any case of open deification apart from only the village members working ,maintaining and improving on their old facilities.
