Alex managed to meet with about 30 community members including the water user committee to brief them about what to expect and what to do during the process of borehole survey and siting. Alex first asked the water user committee if they had fundraised money that will be used to feed the workers and for the borehole account. The community had raised some money to use for feeding the workers and the chairperson water user committee, Nakiranda Ewuleni told the meeting that his people were responding very positively contributing money. She urged them to keep up the good spirit and bring the money as it’s still required. Alex then told the community members to keep discipline during the survey process and to all participate whenever they are told to on what to do by the surveyor. There is always a tendency of people fighting for where the borehole should be drilled and this makes the surveying very hard since people fail to cooperate. Alex was very clear to them that Kibo group has spend too much time bringing them together and they should therefore keep peace and stick together during this process. He told them that once they fail to cooperate and start to fight for where the borehole is to be drilled, then Kibo wouldn’t hesitate to leave them and don’t drill a well. Also Ituba Namalowe borders with another village called Namuwondo village and the two communities agreed to work together and also came up with a location that would help both communities share this new borehole from Kibo and since Namuwondo has no borehole too, however Alex told them that it doesn’t guarantee that water will be found in that location that they had in mind. They should therefore let the surveyor do his job and whenever he will find a point to drill, the community should accept by his guidance. Alex together with the community visited the locations that were selected by the community to be considered for borehole survey and still Alex told them that they should be willing the surveyor go past these locations until he finds a best point for water drilling. The water surveyor was expected the following day on Tuesday 4/12/2018.
