On 27 April 2021 President Kenyatta launched the National Land Information Management System (NLIMS), the culmination of years of digitisation of chaotic land records. It is expected to ease title transfers and safeguard public land from grabbers. It coincided with the opening of a National Geospatial Data Centre, an online depository that will contain all the land records in the country. The President said that ‘at the click of a button citizens will carry out various land transactions, drastically reducing human interaction, delays and all other inconveniences that Kenyans have had to endure in our land registries. Perennial fraud, corruption and illegal transactions will be a thing of the past.’
