The Ministry of Lands has initiated a comprehensive audit of its registries nationwide, aimed at improving service delivery and modernizing cash collection methods.
This audit, slated to span 14 days, will be conducted by eight dedicated teams, each tasked with evaluating registries in different regions, including the Coastal region, Nyanza region, Central region, Western region, and the Rift Valley.
Lands Principal Secretary, Nixon Korir, emphasized the importance of this audit in ensuring accurate record-keeping, potential expansion needs, and safeguarding critical documents.
The teams according to will begin by digitizing all registry documents to make them accessible on electronic platforms, reducing the risk of document loss in unforeseen circumstances, such as the Nyandu incident.
The audit teams will focus on three key objectives: assessing the status of the registries, evaluating their readiness for digitization, and reviewing mapping data for cadastral development.
