Together with the district Hand pump mechanic, the water user committee was told that they had not played their part as required and were called on step up their efforts and fulfill their obligations before kibo group can commission the new well. The district hand pump mechanic, Mr. Kabugo reminded them of the gift and blessing they got for a new borehole from kibo since many villages in the district are crying for water. He re echoed that they have to meet what kibo tells them to do because it’s the best rather than building the borehole fence with poles that last for a short while because these poles are eaten by termites and others steal it to cook. The wall fence around the borehole is very new to people and it’s an idea kibo group WASH is selling out there. When the water user committee had from the HPM, they understood how serious and important it was to build this kind of fence. They committed right away to get all the remaining materials to the borehole site and would inform kibo group when all is ready to start the process of building the fence in less than a week. The water user committee apologized to kibo group for taking very long to respond towards building this fence and they looked ashamed many times because it was very hard to tell the people that a wall fence was required instead of the poles. Driving around the village, Alex observed that most homes were well smeared recently and looked clean. They had smeared the kitchens, pit latrines and houses. Alex will go back to guide the village to construct this type of fence when the village is ready with all the building materials on site.
