Embu to save millions through lands digitization

24 April 2014, 15:48

Embu -  The Embu County has said plans to digitize its Water, Lands and Environment portfolio operations would enable it save KES 500 million.

The digitization programme, to be made in conjunction with the National Land Commission, is expected to be complete towards the end of this year.

Speaking to the media, Josphat Kihumbu, the County Executive Committee (CEC) Member in charge of Water, Lands and Environment, said the move would eliminate the prevalent incidents of fraudulent title deeds.

Prospective landowners have lost money to fraudulent schemes that provide them with fake title deeds.

Kihumbu added that the digitization process will also eliminate widespread conflicts over land.

Meanwhile, speaking to the media following the announcement of the digitization exercise, he said the county had embarked on ambitions plans to plant millions of trees as part of efforts to preserve the environment.

It has set a target of 53 million trees in the next five years.
