While speaking as the guest of honor at Kakoma play ground in Ndorwa West County, Nabbanja told land title beneficiaries in Kitumba sub-county that President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni prohibits demarcating and fragmenting land among children as a great risk to a family asking them not to engage in such acts.
Nabbanja warned the beneficiaries from taking land titles for granted, saying that getting it is a hard process, asking them to guard them with care.
The state minister of trade industry and cooperatives, Hon David Bahati who doubles as the Member of Parliament Ndorwa West County revealed that the area has been on several times facing several cases of land conflicts. Bahati asserted that issuing of land titles will reduce such cases, stop land from being fragmented but become an asset to other resources for family productivity.
The minister of Lands Housing and Urban development Judith Nabakooba revealed that, 11.2 acres of customary registered land belongs to male headed household families and 5.72 acres to female headed family an indicator that land is steadily getting fragmented in Kabale district.
She assured the beneficiaries that the titles are legally recognized by government of Uganda, Banking institutions and courts of law under the leadership of President Museveni.
According to Minister Nabakooba, In Kabale district, Four Sub Counties that include Kamuganguzi, Buhara, Rubaya and Kitumba have documented their land and received certificates of customary land ownership.
