Alex went to meet with the village leaders and government leaders about the kazimba kungira status and trying to get the feeling in the village in a pursue to revive working with kazimba kungira after 3 years without Kibo group being active in this village. The last time Kibo group was in this village, drilling failed and since then no Kibo activity has been to this village recently. Alex first met with the community Development Officer from Iwemba sub county and briefed him about Kibo’s intentions to come back to kazimba kungira. He first wondered where Kibo had disappeared from for a very long time not being in the sub county. Alex told him that there were some issues to settle with the district in renewing Kibo’s M.O. U but that has been settled now and Kibo group is reconsidering working with this village even after failing on borehole drilling in this village. Alex then met with the village leaders, LC1 and the village defense. The village got another opportunity of another NGO called GOAL that worked with the village from last year. The village participated in the hygiene and sanitation program before two wells were drilled. However only one borehole is working currently located about 1.5Km from the location Kibo group failed to get water. The second borehole drilled has no water and currently doesn’t work at all. Also they built anew house for a very old man that was in need of shelter and no one was caring about him. The old borehole located at the primary school also broke down four months ago due to old pipes. Alex will share this info with all the staff and discuss on a way forward for this village with an option of sending a new program to work with this village. The village leaders were so happy to see Alex come back in the village after a very long time not seeing anyone from Kibo group.
