Steven went to this village to monitor the process of drilling a new borehole given to the community by Kibo Group. When Steven reached this community, he met the drillers already setting their machines to start drilling. Steven called the chairman, the Vhts and committee members to witness the drilling process. The community members were so excited to reach the much anticipated day of finally getting safe water, The process started smoothly because everyone one carried out their responsibilities as assigned to them by their leaders. Some members were assigned to prepare something to eat for drillers while others were assigned to take care of the materials on site. The drilling process started at 12 pm and by 5pm they had drilled 62 meters but still they had not reached the water level . At 5:30 pm the DRACO engineers and Steven realized they were hitting dry and it was getting late for that reason they decided to halt the drilling process however Steven and the team resolved that they would carry out another survey to get another location on 17/03/2021.
