Hello all,

Small justification.

With some international help we didn't revert all the work Okwii has
done.  We just managed to restore the border, Lake Victoria and Sigulu
Credits for restoring go to:
- "rab" for Lake Victoria on HOTOSM project 9034, changeset 87807963
- "SomeoneElse" for Tanzania and Uganda on HOTOSM project 9013,
changeset 87451050

All other changes from Okwii (mostly building additions and edits) are
still there. We did not revert them and they can be validated.

After some training, especially focused on major map items like large
relations, you should continue mapping. We are there to help and improve
the map.  I am sure it was an unfortunate mistake by a new but
enthusiastic mapper.  Just avoid these kind of mistakes which are
noticed by the whole community because the area is very active at this
time with all the COVID projects.

In case of any doubts please don't upload just ask for help on OSM,
talkug or mail me direct.

Currently I am editing Lake Victoria to delete some unnecessary
boundary=administrative tagging.

Greetings to all,

Bert Araali
