This new borehole in Ituba has brought people from Namuwondo and Ituba work together since this well now serves both villages. This is therefore a unifying factor for these two villages

Alex met with the water user committee to discuss about the preparations for the commissioning of the new borehole drilled by Kibo group. Together they discussed about how the committee had prepared to feed the visitors that will be coming that day. Alex did also the last training with the committee discussing reviewing their roles and responsibilities for each position at the committee and calling on them to be active at all times. He also visited the district water office to inform them to attend the commissioning exercise and the water officer promised to invite other district officials like the district chairman LC V to attend this Kibo activity. The district continue to appreciate Kibo group for the support to the villages in Namutumba. The water committee has done a very good job to mobilize the people to attend and have raised all the money needed for the borehole account before the borehole is commissioned. Also the village has started to raise some money to repair the second borehole located in the trading center that broke down recently and brought so much pressure on the new Kibo well. This will be fixed very soon to save the new one from breaking down easily.
