The project was initiated under the Kasighau Integrated Community development plan which was spearheaded by the Coast development Authority with support from JICA. Water ranked highly in the priority list especially for Buguta Sub Location. JICA approached the Embassy of Japan and initiated a discussion over funding opportunities. All this happened in early 2010. Upon the identification of a Donor, The Grants for Grassroots Projects (GGP) administered through the Embassy of Japan, CDA/JICA set out to engage a local NGO to submit an application on behalf of Buguta/Makwasinyi community. MAZIDO was eventually engaged after a scrutiny of three NGOs/CBOs to develop a proposal on behalf of the community. This was successfully done and the grant made in March 2011. The initial plan was to supply water from the Makwasinyi spring where water was to be piped upto Buguta Market. However, after the Makwasinyi community refused to allow the project to draw water from its source, MAZIDO/CDA begun exploring other options. Already, the project had procured pipes worth KShs. 3,600,592.35 which were at the time lying unused and exposed to atmospheric elements at the Buguta AP lines. The project was intended to be implemented from April 2011 to March 2012; with time ticking, MAZIDO and CDA desperately sought for an alternative. Atlast, TAVEVO announced that it had revived the Maungu-Buguta line and this presented us an opportunity to redesign the water supply to fit in the new scheme. Following discussions between MAZIDO and TAVEVO, it was finally decided to approach the GGP with a request for change of plan. The request for change of plan was finally made in June 2012. Following the request of change of Plan, and under direction from GGP, a new survey was commissioned and undertaken by TAVEVO surveyors. After lengthy deliberations, the request for change got approval in October 2012 and MAZIDO submitted a request for extension to March 2013 which was eventually approved. There were challenges associated with community with regard to slow trenching which initially slowed down the project. However, after much effort by MAZIDO and the various water committees, trench digging was eventually completed in May 2013. Pipe laying was eventually completed in June 2013. Testing of the GGP funded pipeline has still not been done thereby delaying the handing over of the project by the Embassy of Japan. TAVEVO has continuously gave a commitment that this will be done, yet until now this has not happened. The Contractor has pulled out which means that MAZIDO is left with no other option but to requests TAVEVO to ensure the successful completion of the project. The Embassy of Japan had given MAZIDO upto end of February to complete the testing and hand over the project before the end of March 2014. It is for this reason that MAZIDO wishes to get the undertaking from TAVEVO that it will take over the project and ensure that it serves the intended beneficiaries; the Buguta community. MAZIDO requests TAVEVO to make a formal undertaking which shall then be submitted alongside the project completion report to the Embassy of Japan before 20th March 2014.
