community meeting 
Abraham met five Kazimbakujira members together with the LC1 chairman and the purpose was to see and observe how village members are feeling now in this tough elections which are coming and those they finished. It was important to know how members are feeling because it is not good to bring them together in Kibo meeting when some are still not feeling good to meet with others. Abraham met the Chairman LC 1 Mr John who told him that his Mvule trees he planted four of them were stolen by someone at night, he said that the village is okay even if there those who are still struggling for the outcome of the elections claiming that it was rigged. He said that now there is a hot campaign for LC3 chairman whereby the opposition is wanting to take the seat from the ruling NRM party. The elections will be held on 3/2/ 2021 and that day is not for Kibo meeting and Abraham suggested that they may have the meeting next week 10/2/2021 which he agreed saying that will be a good day. They met some few members at the trading center who were so excited for Kibo to come to the village after the hot elections which took place because some thought Kibo will take a long time to visit them. They moved to the home of one of the Kibo member and found his wife who took them to see one of her trees she planted from Kibo and the tree is doing well but the cage was removed by the children, Abraham advised her to replace the cage to protect it from animals. The chairman LC1 said they need to get leaders of Kibo group because some who were elected are deeply involved in politics which will bring problem and they concluded that on 10/2/2021 all members will be mobilized to come and elect their new leaders.
