The National Land Centre says the largest component of the land registration programme has reached a high of over 65% of the country, which is way above their intended target. The component involves the demarcation and adjudication of land, which the land centre had estimated would be at least 50% this month.
The centre says it has demarcated around 5.5 million people out of an estimated 8 million people. In an interview with Contact FM, Dr. Emmanuel Nkurunziza, the director general of the national land center shared what their time estimates are for this programme.
The centre says it has been facing some challenges though especially those to do with disputes. According to Nkurunziza, some emanate from families themselves, some are caused by polygamy while others are caused by conflicts between state and private land-challenges he says have mostly been dealt with by the adjudication committees as well as by other district resolution organs.
