Notes
Abraham met twenty seven Nawaibete community members and they received two hundred Mvule seedlings,fifty Musizi and fifty Giant lira. They were so happy because they will have to replace those which was stolen from the members where they planted.The chairman told the meeting that they had a strong storm which left some houses the roofs off and also many trees fell down. In Namutumba town the storm brought down the electric poles which hold a big transformer down but for the good thing the Umeme company which is responsible for supplying power switched off the power which saved many people. They went and checked some few members and seeing how they are doing, they moved even to the upper part and some members are also doing fine but those who were arrested by police because of insulting a lady who is still in the hospital, they are still in the prison as they wait to go to court where they will be sent free or punish them of what they did. Abraham advised them not to start judging the people before they are proved guilty but they need to work hard to see that the community remains together. They need to remember that they will stay in this community even their grand children.Those who had not put cages around the trees were told to do so soon to protect the trees from animals. They are going to start thinking of what they can do together as a village and future they will include it in their constitution.
