It also highlights the privatization of community land for commercial purposes and rise of private interest only due to economic challenges. Particularly, no documentation of customary property rights system resulted difficulties on the part of the Nampou to provide tenure security and create dilemmas among the villagers who live at the mercy of the Nampou. The customary tenure system seems to be collapsing slowly because of the emerging patterns of growing inequalities provoked by local politics, church, access, control and ownership by few.
