Martin went to Mpumiro, he walked around that village, with the Chairman LC1, parish chief and the VHTS. Their intention was to check on the sanitation and hygiene improvement in that village like hand washing stands, dish racks, roofing of the new latrines and to encourage the residents about the standards of the new dish racks. Good enough residents are busy working on their new hand washing stands and others are plastering them, and others are still working on them. On the side of the new latrines, some homes which was still lagging behind to work on them, they are busy working on them like others are digging them and others are constructing them like Abubakali Isabirye’s latrine 30ft deeper, it’s under construction. And the group was so encouraged to see Jamawa Yahaya, she was constructing the new latrine two rooms. When Martin and the group asked her, that why are you constructing this latrine.? She answered that, since kibo came in her village, her husband was sick and he is still sick, he can not manage to construct any facility. And he is her husband, she can not live without a latrine. So that’s why she decided to construct the kitchen, shower area and she is also constructing the new latrine two rooms. Generally Martin and group was so happy for Jamawa to construct those facilities. And they was encouraging about maintenance and smearing, to make them strong and clean. So as kibo is still working in that community as well as the village, the group walked in 34homes.
