Notes
Abraham went to pick Nawaikona sub county CDO and they went to meet Nawaibete community members. He waited for him because he had something's to finish at Nsinze sub county. They went and met twenty six Nawaibete community members and the CDO was happy to find the members waiting for them. The chairman thanked the CDO for visiting their village, he told him that Kibo has worked in this village, hygiene and sanitation and he said that many community members have latrines, dish racks, kitchens,rubbish pits. They have planted six hundred trees in the village and they are now writing their constitution whereby they need help from the government. He went through their constitution and they told the CDO to have any idea about their what they have done so far. The CDO started by thanking Kibo for the good work done so far and he told the members that the only problem they are facing is politics, he reminded them about what happened in this village whereby three of the community members are in prison. He advised them not to be divided because of politics because Nawaibete village is bigger than politics, they were born in Nawaibete and they will be buried in Nawaibete and if they are doing anything let them think about that. He thanked them for making their constitution and said that this is what the government also wants people to do so that they can benefit from government programs. He told the chairman to give him their constitution so that he will look at and bring back to them when he has made remarks are things to change or correct. He went with the drafted constitution hoping to bring back within a week. Abraham thanked the group for being patient because last time the CDO had problem and he did not come to meet them and encouraged them to continue working together because that will make their village a better place to live. They left the place when all members were very happy because at first they thought the CDO will not come to meet them. 

Next Visit: 2018-11-22 - Purpose: To go through their constitution after a review by the CDO.
