Notes
Abraham, Mark Moore, Grade and Jackson visited Kishaike community members and they discussed how they can work together as a community because they have been calling Abraham to go and help them to come together after government local council one election which left the community divided. The chairman took the visitors around to see the trees, their latrines they are constructing, their goats they received from Kibo. They came to the meeting place and the chairman thanked Abraham for coming to meet them, he said that politics has brought a big problem in the village because many can not greet their friends. They struggled to elect the government local council one because they had many candidates and yet they are all from Kishaike and that made some people not to vote to avoid being seen as they hate others because if you vote one which means you do not like the other. The chairman blamed the Uganda electoral commission to organize such election which left people hating each other, he said that it would be better for ballot papers but lining on someone bring a lot of problem because some will see you that you did not vote for him. Abraham reminded them that from the beginning they discussed about things which can make people not to work together and one of them is politics. He told them to remember those things so that they are aware when they happen to meet them. They listed them down and they started with politics, religion, clans and tribes, riches, power and many others. He told them to be aware of those issues not to separate them as a community but to continue working together. Mark Moore also encouraged the community for what they doing, keeping the trees good, smearing their houses, keeping the goats well and he said that if they keep that spirit of working together many things will happen to their village which will make their village better than it is now. They promised to continue working together and they asked Abraham to be visiting them and encourage them. 

Next Visit: 2018-08-17 - Purpose: To see how the will work together after the government dividing the village into two villages because now some members are in a different village.
