Police officers reading through literature material that contains Buganda Land Board's products and processes.
The Kabaka of Buganda previously issued a directive for Buganda Land Board to amplify its sensitization campaigns. This was to ensure that people understand what Buganda Land Board does, its products and processes as well as how it is beneficial to them, especially in regards to Kyapa mu Ngalo. Buganda Land Board has since then taken the bull by its horns and started implementing the Kabaka’s directive.
In implementing it, it has gone to different stakeholders to teach them about its activities. Among those stakeholders are police officers that BLB singled out and on 26th June 2017, Buganda Land Board held a sensitization clinic with Police officers of Katwe regional police headquarters.

The officers were taught by Mr.Ntambi Abby, a community mobilization officer with Buganda Land Board who informed them about Kyapa mu Ngalo. He explained that Kyapa mu ngalo is in place to help those who have always wanted to get lease titles but were hindered by high premium costs. He said that Kyapa mu Ngalo cuts premium costs thus making it easier to get titles on Kabaka’s land.
He also explained to them the advantages of having a land title, which include;
- access to meaningful credit,
- possibility to sublease,
- possibility to use their kibanja in joint investment ventures
- court surety
- meaningful compensation from government during projects which are many in Buganda
- protection from evictions as it has been witnessed with the bibanja system
- possibility to sell their kibanja at a higher price than they would have sold without a title
Police officers attentively listening to Mr.Ntambi Abby.
The Police Officers were also taught about other BLB products including the LE-Card, Ebbaluwa Entongole, Kanzu, Weetukire, Land Banking and External services.
The police officers were happy and thanked Buganda Land Board for bringing them the sensitization clinic.
