Housing firm endorses digitisation of land matters

Urithi Housing Chairman Samuel Maina

Urithi Housing Cooperative has hailed the government move to digitise operations at the ministry of lands saying that the action will curb shoddy dealings in the ministry.

Chairman Samuel Maina noted that after the automation it will make it easier, efficient and transparent to undertake land transactions.

He noted that the analog system encouraged cartels who colluded with unscrupulous Kenyans to encourage corruption at the ministry and swindle land owners of their property.

Maina regretted that Kenyans had lost colossal sums of money and property to corruption through the manual processing of records.

“This is the way to go, digital means more transparency, efficiency and zero shoddy dealings. Land buyers will now start developing trust which is a good thing,” he said.

He said land issue was very sensitive and should be accorded the seriousness it deserves.

“I urge the government not to look back in its resolve to ensure that the system is set, fully digitized to ease transactions and wipe out corruption that has left many wallowing in poverty,” he added.

The Ministry of Lands in March launched the digitization of land records that will be finalized by the end of 2019. This system enhances efficiency, security, and transparency in land transactions.

Online services are currently available in Nairobi and neighbouring counties.
