The new system was developed by a Kenyan staff team over a period of three years and is designed to enhance the security of land records, speed up land operations and control fraud.

Speaking at the unveiling of the new system at the Nairobi National Bureau of Statistics, President Kenyatta told Kenyans that the digital platform would protect them against exploitation of traders, middle class and fraudsters.

“With the advent of Land Now, missing files, permanent fraud, corruption and illegal land transactions will be a thing of the past.

“The full release of the program will facilitate the resolution of historic land disputes and ensure the safety and sanctity of your land title deed, in fact by definition of Your Land, Clean Deed,” President Kenyatta said.

With today’s launch of Ardhisasa, the land information management system in Nairobi has been left open. However, landowners who cannot access their records are advised to be patient while the Ministry of Lands continues to fill the digital platform.

“As we fully enter into the National Land Information Management System and protect the public interest in this national activity, I call on all Kenyans to co-operate while calling on the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning to provide any information necessary to complete any verification of any land, ”the President urged Kenyans.

President Kenyatta welcomed a thorough search of the Nairobi land register saying the exercise would be extended to the whole country step by step.

“Another 20 counties will be in the digital system by the end of the year. We anticipate that all counties will have reached the end of 2022, ”President Kenyatta said.

The State Leader further stated that the new digital platform will benefit landowners and landowners by providing accurate information needed to support land sales easily and in a timely manner.

The Ardhisasa project also saw the production of the first digital map of Kenya and those of the 47 national counties, as well as the cadastral map of Nairobi City County.

The cadastral map enables the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning to begin the process of moving to a unitary government for land registration to prevent fraud and reduce procurement time.

“It is also known that public land is separated from private land; and all public land in Nairobi is now listed, registered and protected for public use, ”the President said.

President Kenyatta commended the Kenyan youth team who for the past three years worked to build and deploy a world-class system at a fraction of the cost previously used to fund unsuccessful numerical experiments.

“Your place of honor in the memory of our history is guaranteed by your contribution to moving the nation forward you cannot die through the work of your hands.

“You have shown once again that we can rely on domestic solutions to develop our country; and emphasizing the cost-effectiveness of working together as one unified Government of Kenya, ”President Kenyatta commended the young Kenyans.

Land CS Faridah Karoney said that the digital platform will provide one store for all Government services and land information.

For his part, PS Land Dr Nicholas Muraguri said the Ardhisasa platform would enable Kenyans to set up and monitor land activities from the comfort of their homes or offices using mobile phones or computers.
