Buganda Land Board (BLB) will begin electronic registration of land in the United Kingdom and other European countries to enable Ugandans acquire land while abroad. The system will use the Land Electronic Card.
BLB officials have began travelling to the United Kingdom to promote the system before going to Denmark and the Netherlands.
“The board has a wide client base in the diaspora which has suffered fraudulent transactions, compared to those clients back home. We have cases of impersonation even by the supposed trustees and relatives, among others. The main purpose of BLB’s participation is to reach out to most of the Kabaka’s subjects living in the diaspora and create awareness on land matters including introducing to them the board’s new developments that contribute to their wellbeing especially in the land sector” BLB managing director Kyewalabye Male said.
The Land Electronic Card is similar to an ATM card. It carries all an individual’s land related information.
