Notes
Abraham, Alex B, Roy, Ida, Harriet Henry and Nate met thirty one Kiteigalwa community members and they went to apologize to the community since Kibo left the village because of renewing of the Kibo certificate in Bugiri district. There was struggle at the Bugiri district officials who wanted a lot of information before the registration is renewed, that made Kibo to stop the operation in the district and Kiteigalwa community thought Kibo had left them. They meeting by the village chairman welcoming Kibo back to their village and even some songs were sung welcoming Kibo back. Roy Mwesigwa apologized on behalf of Kibo to the members and he told them that Kibo is back in the village as usual. He told the meeting that the reason why Kibo stopped visiting their community it was because of renewing the registration at the Bugiri district which took along time for Kibo to compromise with the district. They members were very happy and the village chairman said that they had some problem during the government elections of local council one, members are a little bit divided because of supporting the one who lost the election and he encouraged the community members to come together to make their village better than it is today. The chairman said they need to look back back where they came from so that they can continue with that same spirit. Henry reminded them about the day Sunil, shires and christians came together as one, he told them that was the good new of the village so they have to leave behind things that divide them but embrace those that unite them. They asked Abraham to go back and encouraged them to work together electing the new chairman for group A.
