In this era, many people purchase land, get titles but later discover that they purchased air and the title is fake.
The Minister of Lands, housing and urban development Hon Betty Amongi who doubles as Oyam south legislator has said that her Ministry will soon introduce a computerized system to address the challenge.
Speaking to Real estate developers and stakeholders in the Housing sector, Amongi said that the process will be concluded in the next two to three years.
“We are trying our best in the sector of land reforms through computerization. We hope to conclude the process in the next two to three years to fully have a functional computerized system which is encrypted in such a way that when you are issued with a title and someone comes to get a title on that particular land, the system will automatically reject it,” she said
Amongi also revealed that her Ministry was requested to make a paper and submit it to the cabinet for discussion and policy proposal on how government can support individuals or private companies in Housing sector.
After the paper is discussed and passed by cabinet, she says, private companies will receive some support from government in form of building them some infrastructure like roads especially in the estates.
“Instead of private companies in the sector borrowing money to make roads within the estate or make utilities like power or water, it will be done by government as it has been done for investors in the industrial parks,” Amongi added
