community meeting 
Abraham met fifteen Kivule community members and the purpose was to discuss about a pig they bought as a group. Abraham asked the group what they can do together as a group,they community contributed some money and they bought one pig. The pig produced six piglets whereby they are growing big and now what to do with the piglets as they are becoming many. They chairman Mr Christopher told the members that they have been thinking of giving the piglets to some members to take care of them. Some members complained that they do not work with the pigs because they are Muslims, Adventist or some just do not want to take care of pigs. Abraham advised them that if it is becoming hard they can sell the piglets and do something which can unite them. They secretary Mr Ibula agreed with what Abraham’s suggestion and he added that they can sell the piglets and get land so that they can grow cassava which all feel good and they all agreed to do it. He said that they are waiting for the CDO because they approached him but he was busy with NRM party elections. They are going to look for piglets market price so that they can sell them to hire land for growing cassava.
