Notes
Enock and Martin visited this community to carry out the evaluation survey to know the latrine percentage of this village and know how many homes have latrines, dish racks, rubbish pits, kitchen areas, hand washing facilities, shower areas. The homes visited are working on new latrines in this village, some of the residents who have completed working on latrines are happily using them, it’s shining a lot lately and people are now using their shower areas during the day unlike before when they used not to. Enock and Martin continued walking around with the VHT and sub county health inspector Deborah who also emphasized the residents to work on their facilities and maintain all of them. They were impressed to find when some of the men were busy in the latrine pits digging. Enock asked the chairman who was in charge of the pickaxes and whether they are using them. He said all pick axes were taken and are busy being used. The residents are so appreciative for all the lessons taught to them because it has improved on their health conditions, and reduced a number of diseases caused by poor hygiene say diarrhea, cholera among others. The people were scared when they saw Enock and Martin writing their names down while carrying out the evaluation so they are taking the work so serious.

Village Notes
There is a family of Nkambo Hamuza which had constructed a new latrine hole but due to some land issues with the family, they refused them to construct on it. They told him to go and construct in his fathers land. Yet the land is for the whole clan but some of the relatives are the ones who have refused him to construct on there. He is now planning to move and construct a new house in his fathers land then construct a latrine as well.
