On Wednesday 28/10/2020 and Thursday 29/10/2020, Alex was in Ndhalike to carry out borehole survey with the hydrogeologist from Draco drilling contractors. Both days were disrupted with rains and this is one of the reason why this survey was quite hard. On Wednesday, there was rain that disorganized the day and couldn’t complete the survey and also on Thursday it threatened to rain and even drizzled but fortunately we had finished. Having tried out six water points that were surveyed, the hydrogeologist was able to find one potential point to drill water. This process wasn’t easy as the hydrogeologist was getting very bad results in the beginning and was wondering if we could get a potential water point. Everyone kept waiting patiently until the hydrogeologist landed on a good spot that he told Alex if the community could allow this to be considered. Alex then to the community members present and asked if they were ok with that point and also if the land owner was willing to give out part of his land for to the community to allow kibo group drill a well for this village. The community members led by the chairman were happy that the water point was got with in the middle of the village as majority of the community members had wanted. The land owner, Mr. Takozekibi Sanoni was happy as well and willing to give out part of his land to the community for borehole drilling and would provide the land agreement to kibo group before the borehole drilling as required. Alex would go back to continue preparing the village for the borehole drilling and complete the signing of the land agreement.
