PRESIDENT Samia Suluhu Hassan has revoked title deeds in respect of 11 farms with a total of 24,119 acres in Kilosa District, Morogoro Region which would be allocated to the people to be used for various activities including farming and livestock keeping

The president has also endorsed the revival of 49 farms on 45,788.5 acres that were nationalized, but the residents had no certainty of their status to the now dormant farmland, where a huge chunk of the farmland will be allocated to residents in the area for farming purposes.

The president’s decision was announced yesterday at Kilosa by the Minister for Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Development, William Lukuvi in meetings with leaders, officials and the people of Kimamba Village in the district as he continues with a tour of the region.

The people who will be given the farms are those who have no land at all and not given for the
purpose of amassing land areas. The land should be given to those in need for income
generation, he told gathered officials..

Regional Commissioner Martine Shigela expressed gratitude for the president’s move both on title deed revocation and revival of other farms in the district, noting that the region shall work too resolve challenges that could arise during the land allocation exercise.
