Notes
Alex met with the community in Kisiro to preoare them for the borehole survey expected soon. The village is required to be united and no one have selfish desires where the well is to be drilled. Alex stressed it clearly to the people of Kisiro that they have to let the water surveyor do his job and the village should cooperate with him. Also the village selected six possible areas to be surveyed for water. These will be the community priority areas to be surveyed for water but it does not necessarily mean that these will be the only areas in the village to be considered for water survey. Three of the areas are located in the lower part of the village and the one in the central while the remaining two are located in the upper part of Kisiro. However the water surveyor has the freedom to move the whole village in search for the possible site good for water. The community was told to cooperate and work together during that process of water survey and no one to develop selfish ambitions for where the two wells should be drilled. The village was reminded that Kibo group for a very long time has worked with Kisiro to unite them and work together and so the water should not be one to divide them and Alex told the people frankly that when this happens, Kibo would right away leave them. Most villages have a tendency of fighting for where the water should be drilled but this is not good as it divides people and others think that some body might have bribed. Alex told the village that no one not even the so called politicians have the powers to say where the wells from kibo group have to be drilled in the village. This gift is from God to all the people in Kisiro. Also on a very good note, the village has already contributed 400,000/= with in a week towards the capital cost of their two wells to be constructed in Kisiro. The village is required to contribute 600,000/= towards the two wells to be drilled in Kisiro village. Alex will keep in touch with water user committee and the water surveyor about the day for the water survey in Kisiro as its expected very soon.
