This study was on mitigating land corruption through computerisation of land governance activities that include land use planning, cadastral surveying, servicing of land, land allocation, land registration and titling and land development. Using evidence from Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of the Congo), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Kitwe (Zambia), the study used both primary and secondary data to conclude that despite computerisation of land governance activities in Tanzania and Zambia, corruption still persists. On the other hand, land governance activities in Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of the Congo) were still paper based and this made the activities highly susceptible to corruption. Causes of corruption identified were low salaries for employees in public land institutions, delay in payment of salaries, lack of monitoring in the services provided, cumbersome procedures, and lack of transparency. In view of these, it is recommended that the respective governments should work on reducing corruption through increasing salaries for employees in land institutions, pay salaries on time, effective monitoring in the services provided, streamlining  procedures and ensure transparency.
