Our Precious Borehole

By a male, in Sabatia, Kenya
Map of Our precious Borehole In the village where i was born,we fetch water from a spring.But the hill we have to climb is very one day, a company known as KEFINCO came to the village and drilled a borehole. The villagers were very thankful to the company.This led to the lighting up of the village with electricity and water.However the project was short-lived. There came a time when water decresed in our rivers and so the amount of electricity went down.Hence the whole country underwent power rationing. People went back to their old ways.They abandoned the borehole thinking that power rationing would last forever.People from the neighbouring village took the advantage and destroyed the borehole.Since the borehole was destroyed efforts have never been made to bring it to life.
