Alex was in Igerera B to meet with the village residents preparing them for the borehole survey that is expected soon in the village. The village agreed together and selected 3 possible areas that would be considered for the borehole survey. The village is given a chance to come up with areas that could be put into consideration for survey and also being in the center of the village. However it’s not a limitation to the surveyor as he is given the freedom to carry out the water survey in the whole village and come up with the most potential point for water drilling. The surveyor will put into consideration the areas most desired by the village for the borehole drilling . The village people were encouraged once more to be available on the day of borehole survey and participate as may be required by the surveyor. The village residents were encouraged to keep calm and avoid disputes amongst themselves in fighting for where the borehole can be drilled as this is a gift from God meant the unite the village more. The village leader also thanked his village residents for trusting Kibo group and embracing all what Kibo has brought to the village. No one wrote to Kibo group requesting them for clean water to Igerera but the village is happy that Kibo group has decided to give a well to the village. Alex told the community members to work together as a community and let nothing divide the village. A neutral area was selected to be between Kanani’s home and Edirisa’s home. This will be surveyed by the surveyor when turns up to survey for water in this community. Alex also told the village to be ready for the visitors coming from divine water group and at the same time have given out money to have the borehole in Igerera B be drilled.
