Notes
Abraham met thirty two Bukoma community members and the reason of the meeting was to make ways how they can work together after the recent government local council one elections where both candidates are Kibo members. They have been struggling to unite the two because the former chairman refused to hand over the government items like stamp to the new chairman. Abraham went and checked the bore hole, he found one bolt is not there, he asked the members who said they do not know may be the treasurer kept it.The government of Uganda made this election open whereby that creates hatred among the people, if it was a ballot paper that is okey because the candidates cannot know who gave them a vote or not. When Abraham reached the village some members told him that the new chairman was involved in a motorcycle accident yesterday and he was taken to the hospital. He is a good mobilizer and the group meets at his place. The members asked Abraham to meet these two people because if those two solve their problem then the community does not have any problem. Abraham told them that it is bad that the new chairman was involved in an accident because he wanted to meet both of them to pave way how they can work together and encourage the all village because they are our leaders. Abraham encouraged the members to finish filling the holes with manure. He went and visited the Bukoma B chairman who said they are very busy working on filling the holes with manure and he thinks by end of next week every member will be ready for planting. It started raining hard and Abraham left to Jinja.
