Tom made a visit to Namulu village to meet with village leaders and decide on the day of the baseline survey as well as looking at the state of the broken well. When he arrived in the village, he found when Mr Muyinda waiting at his home while most of the village committee and village leaders had gone to a funeral in the nearby village. Tom and Mr Muyinda moved around the village from the trading center towards the upper section of the village. Tom realized that the village of Namulu was so stretched but with a high rate of sanitation levels. Tom and Mr Muyinda drove around to the upper borehole which was given to them about 2yrs ago. The borehole bearings where broken and the bore-handle was wiggling. Tom advised the chairman of the borehole committee to mobilize the village so that they buy the beating to avoid more problems r the borehole and other future breakdowns which may result from the broken bearings. On the broken well, Mr Muyinda said the borehole pipes had separated because they are plastic pipes. One of the committee members present said the pipes can be retrieved because they are still attached to the borehole cylinder. On the issue of sanitation and hygiene, Tom, Mr Muyinda and other few members present suggested that the baseline survey be conducted on Monday the 31st May 2021.
