Only 0.2% Secure Land Titles issued


Minister of Lands and Water Affairs Kefentse Mzwinila has said the suspension of a tender award for a cadastral survey by the Procurement Tribunal has caused a delay in the issuance of Secure Land Titles (SLT).

Responding to a question in Parliament this week, the minister said out of the 493,004 people who registered their plots, only 1,953 people have been issued with SLTs as of February, and this is reflective of the curtailment of stopping the continuation of the tender by the Tribunal. A total of 836,906 SLTs are to be issued.

The introduction of the SLT followed the commencement of the re-enacted Tribal Land Act of 2018, and the Deeds Registry (Amendment) Act of 2017. The process requires plot holders to register their land rights with the Registrar of Deeds through the Land Boards. The individual land parcels’ registration must be preceded by the registration of the parent plot in the name of the concerned Land Board with the Registrar of Deeds. This involves the survey and registration of Cadastral Areas which are village boundaries.
