SECURING LAND TENURE: Proposed reforms are meant to protect tenants | Land Portal

The State Minister for Lands Sam Mayanja has responded to critics who accuse him of spearheading a plot by government to abolish the Mailo land tenure system and replace it with a freehold land tenure system. Mayanja has explained that the new proposals are instead aimed at strengthening ownership of land by the tenants on Mailo land so that they can acquire freehold land titles in perpetuity. Minister Mayanja made the remarks on Thursday at the National Lands information systems where he had gone to familiarise himself with the computerised system of managing land titles that government established to curb forgery and double titling.
