Alex went to Nawandyo A first to have a meeting with the water user community and conduct a training about their roles and responsibilities. However, the water user committee needs to replace two inactive committee members, namely the treasurer and the vice chairperson. Alex together with the water committee members that turned up agreed to hold a village general meeting and select two new people to join the committee before Alex could continue with the training of the water user committee. The village chairman, Mr Mohammad Gasemba promised to call for a village meeting very soon and ensure that this is done as soon as possible. Kibo is partnering with this village to repair the borehole but the village needs to first meet the conditions and standards before the borehole can be repaired. The village has so far raised a contribution of 200,000/= towards their borehole account. This borehole needs 9 stainless pipes and rods. Alex together with the committee members discussed some of the roles that they have to play and emphasized the importance of an active and functional water user committee. Alex will go back to continue with the training of the water user committee for each to understand their roles and responsibilities since there was no any training of the water user committee by the government when the government drilled this borehole back in 2013. Alex also visited Nawandyo B to check on the new borehole that was recently drilled by Kibo group. This borehole was last week Friday 31/08/2018 locked when Alex had gone to carry out an evaluation in Nawandyo A but found out that the borehole was not working well because the water wasn’t flowing and it was producing a funny noise, a sign of a fault with the borehole so Alex decided to lock it and informed Draco about the problem that he had seen on the new borehole. On a very good note, Draco responded a day later and came to the village and fixed the problem. Alex had gone to check whether the borehole was now functioning as required after Draco coming to rectify the problem. This borehole has generally had some issues right from the drilling time because of a bad soil formation. Draco installed new pump buckets and re-pumped the borehole to make sure it was working well before installing the pipes. Alex together with the water user committee will continue to monitor this borehole performance and will inform the contractor where necessary.
