Drilling in Kisiro started on Friday 15/11/2019. The drillers managed to get some water on the same at a depth of 15M, however the rock in Kisiro was very hard in that for two days of drilling in Kisiro, the drillers had managed to only drill up to 28M. On Saturday 16/11/2019, the drillers continued with the drilling process to drill deeper and find more water, it would take more than 1 hour to get one rod to penetrate the rock. Drilling in Kisiro consumed a lot of fuel than they have ever drilled for Kibo before. It needed a lot of patience for both the community and the drillers until they find water enough for the community. The driller himself assured Alex that he would be successful to get enough water for the village but would take several days to drill deeper.
