In Abinani Makonde’s home the Kibo staff found him when he was constructing anew pit latrine about 15 feet deep. The Kibo staff encouraged him to double his effort since it was a rainy season and his aim was to dig up to 22 feet. In magino,s home they found him while he had finished the construction of his 22feet pit. They encouraged him to construct on it using good construction materials for the sustainability of his latrine.
They found that in mr James Wagibale’s home had also finished the construction of his 20 feet pit latrine and even roofed it . They thanked him and advised him also to construct the new design of the dish rack which uses lesser nails. As they were in Kowa Manuel’s home he told them that he was only left with the roofing of his pit latrine.
They continued and moved in mr Kawesa Rogers home who had dug a 22 feet deep pit. They encouraged him to also balance his timetable while he will be working on the rest of the other sanitation facilities. They also moved to mr Dauson Kaama’s home . They appreciated him so much because he had the most cleanest home with all the necessary sanitation facilities. The Kibo staff encouraged him to maintain his good sanitation and hygiene facilities . The Kibo staff were discouraged with mr Christopher ‘Nalukosi and Joshua Engawu homes because they were the only homes which still practicing open deification. Therefore David encouraged the owners of the three homes to work hard to improve on their sanitation standards.
