Alex had earlier on called two people on the water user committee to mobilize each other for a meeting with Alex. Unfortunately only two of the committee members turned up a sign to show that the water committee had become inactive. Alex asked why the rest of the people had not come and there was no clear reason. One of the community members told Alex that most of the people are committed in their gardens planting peanuts and others working with construction company that is busy building a new road connecting Namutumba and Butaleja districts. When Alex visited the borehole he was very disappointed to learn that the borehole is pumped all day and night and it was found very dirty. It was then concluded that the village had forgotten their roles and responsibilities and needed a wake up call from kibo. The village need to form a new water user committee to replace the old one. Alex had to show some tough love to this village and locked the borehole temporarily until the village residents remember what they are supposed. Alex will only go back if the people are willing to come together, form a new water user committee and complete the borehole wall fence.
