Community meeting to generate constitution in Namosing and Dale villages in Namosing parish
This was a community meeting purposed to generate a constitution on land matters. The meeting had the team from LEMU and the sub-county introduce themselves and the community members would introduce themselves while making their remarks since the number was big to do an individual introduction which would take much time
