After Jakhama, we drove to the nearby village of Kigwema.

Local materials

The two villages were once enemies, but reconciled 40 years ago. Because it did not co-operate with foreign troops during the war, Kigwema does not have any old buildings, but it did seem a little more prosperous than Jakhama.
