Land reforms in Kenya have been a sensitive issue that has haunted many helpless citizens who end up losing their tracks of land to grabbers. Driven by the need of addressing the historic social injustices in Kenya, the ministry of land collaborated with a group of techies over a period of three years to come up with a platform that would digitize all land transactions.[Photo courtesy]
This gave birth to Ardhisasa, a digital land information management system that marks the end of manual land transactions. At the click of a button, Nairobi residents can carry out land transactions online without the need to physically visiting Ardhi House. In addition, the system seeks to reduce human interactions, curb fraud, enhance the security of land records, speed up transactions and finally protect potential land buyers from exploitation by cartels, middlemen and fraudsters.[Photo courtesy]
This is good news for citizens who have more often than not experienced long queues and slow services at land offices countrywide. What are your thoughts on the new system? How quickly will it be rolled out to other counties outside of Nairobi?[Photo courtesy]
