Bomariba Sub-Location Assistant Chief Benjamin Ayuma speaking in his office on Thursday said a section of residents have been missing from their homes even at night something that he said may derail the enumeration process. 

"I urge residents who are yet to be counted to be at their homes so that they can be counted because the enumerators have missed counting people in some homesteads," he said.

He appealed to residents to spare some time to be counted given that the exercise is expected to end on Saturday, August 31, 2019. 

The administrator confirmed that so far no case of indiscipline has been witnessed in homes visited by the enumerators. 

"I am happy that no resident has turned away the enumerators. Every resident must be counted as this will help the government plan accordingly and send enough resources to help Bomariba residents," stated the chief. 

He lauded clan elders and Nyumba Kumi officials who have been accompanying the enumerators to various homesteads to count residents.
