Digitalised Land System to Transform Sector

Over the last decade, the Ministry of Lands, Housing, and Urban Development has engaged in reforming the land sector through the formulation and enactment of an enabling legal framework, the establishment of land administration institutions, and land tenure regularisation.

According to the ministry, the computerised system has decentralised land governance through the establishment of 22 selfcontained one-stop Ministry Zonal Offices (MZOs) across the country, demonstrating a significant impact on strengthening land tenure security, reducing corruption, consolidating revenue, and improving service delivery.
