The stories of hardworking Ugandans abroad losing their hard earned money to dishonest friends and relatives they have entrusted with buying them property are a common place.
And John Ninsiima is not exception. Before he found an agency to take him to Canada where he has been a nurse for the last six years, he dreamt of owning his home where he would raise his 4 boys
Getting a job in Canada would have freed him, given him a fresh start if he did not trust his friends with finding him a plot of land and build him a three bedroom house.
He narrates that he faithfully sent his friend money and actually has proof that money was received. On his friend’s part, he sent him fake pictures and videos in exchange for money he sent her. He could not believe his eyes when he returned to Kampala and his friend told him stories after stories. The two are now in court – he hopes one day he will get justice.
The biggest fear of anyone on kyeyo is being betrayed by someone they trusted with their hard earned money to do for them something home.
Many people in the diaspora hope to return some day to a beautiful home worth their investment or something valuable. However, many times, the people to trust with their money either cheat them or give them a low deal. Some are simply dishonest while others have no experience or expertise in what they are asked to do.
Most Ugandans however believe owning a home or real estate property is the way to keep their money in the value chain. They are not wrong.
Musbon real estate has been a player in the Ugandan market for long. Bridging the gap to affordable and high end homes for the diaspora community. You can trust us to deliver .
The most important question is therefore, which property, and who can deliver it?
Days of calling that relative wondering if they can search for you a plot and build a house on your behalf only to return to wetland or no home, are no more.
We should all agree that supervising a construction project is a lot of work. Let alone, many of us having no experience in doing so. We end up losing valuable time, efforts and money trying to do what we don’t real know.
Amongi said the Ministry of Lands has upgraded its record keeping system of land titles.
“We know you have issues related to purchasing genuine land, some of you have been cheated or given bad deals on land. We are working on verifying the right real estate dealers,” she said adding “We are establishing for you a Diaspora Desk in the Ministry on any land issues, whether buying property including verification of land.”
The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Dorcas Okalany echoed the Minister’s statements.
She said that in a country where only 18 percent of land owners have registered title or certificate and with most land holders not having documentary evidence of their property rights, an integrated lands management system is key.
“The land information system is meant to digitize land that has been titled. This helps in minimizing fraudulent land deals. The process of digitizing all land in Uganda will go on until 2019,” Okalany noted.
