text: From Kilomi to Zulhama. I am not sure that it is not time to reserve from jhuming the heavy forest on this hill top as apparently attempts are being made to jhum there in places, though it is little enough to get in the way of crops. Land however is very scarce and Kilomi has not started terraces yet. One of the chiefs of Satakha wants to start a new village near Ghaspani. I offered him a vacant site near Chiphama, I think the village was called Tizoma. Shevekhe also asks for a site but won't take any that I offer.
