Martin and Enock went to Mpumiro, to check on the progress of the sanitation facilities in that village. They walked around that village with the Chairman LC1, LC2 and the sanitation committee members. The community members had worked so hard on their sanitation facilities like latrine constructions. dish racks, rubbish pits kitchens and shower areas. But unfortunately last week they had a heavy storm, and other sanitation facilities like latrines, kitchens and shower facilities who had not constructed on a good standards was destroyed, So the group was encouraging the residents about the standards, maintenance, smearing and the use of ash to eliminate mosquitoes, flies and smell in their homes. Because when it’s rain season like this time, mosquitoes and flies are in plenty. And those insects can cause diseases like malaria, diarrhea and typhoid. So that’s why kibo is working so hard to encourage the community members to use ash in their latrines to eliminate flies and mosquitoes to reduce those diseases. The village leaders decided to work hard to encourage the community members to work on their sanitation facilities on a good standards. And for those who are still working on their sanitation facilities, they have tried to visit those who have worked on them, and they have seen the value, so they promised to work on them. The group walked in 42homes.
