Over 23,000 title deeds have not been collected from Makueni County Land Registrar’s office, Makueni County Commissioner Mr. Mohammed Maalim said.
Maalim said this on Monday during the official launch of issuance of title deeds at Kitundu Adjudication Section in Mbooni West Sub-county.
In this regard, he urged the Makueni residents to collect their title deeds while adding that they will not be charged any money.He was accompanied by Makueni County Land Registrar, Callen Nyakundi who reported to the area two weeks ago.
Maalim wondered why the title deeds were lying in offices without being collected by the owners who would have used the document to acquire loans in a bid to improve their wellbeing.
“Where is the problem, is it you or us? The titles deeds have been lying uncollected for a long time, this must stop. Officers charged with responsibility of issuing titles should ensure the residents get the vital document once processed,” he said.
During the issuance at Kitundu Monday over 4,000 residents took their title deeds out of the expected 5,078 people.
On corruption, the administrator asked the residents to report any civil servant demanding bribes from them saying such officers will be dealt with according to law of the land.
“Report anybody asking for money. The government is committed to ending this vice. Civil servants should be satisfied with their salary,” he said.
On the National Integrated Information System (NIIMS), the county commissioner appealed to the residents to turn out in large numbers on April 2, 2019 when the exercise will kick-off and make it a success.
He said that the assistant chiefs who will be registration officers, will be trained as from March20 to 30. Other five registration clerks will be recruited in each sub-location to assist in the programme.
He observed that the Huduma Number will go a long way in improving security in the country as those who acquired identity cards illegally will be napped.
