Edward Tembo
Edward Tembo has been a well digger and mason for many years. He made many open wells, toilets and soak away pits in his village. At the moment his passion is into “well digging” though at times he is contracted to build structures such as houses by the local community. Edward attended the Jacana basic training for three days.
