KAMPALA – Ministry of LANDS, Housing and Urban Development has opened all zonal land offices closed during the COVID-19 lockdown.

In the move to mitigate the spread of coronavirus in the country, the government decided to temporary close lands offices a couple of weeks ago.

According to Lands Ministry, this was after realizing that zonal offices given the crowding that happens there can easily become COVID-19 super spreaders.

“The offices started to operate on the 15th of July 2021 but in strict compliance of the Presidential and Ministry of Health directives,” Judith Nabakoba, Lands Minister said.

Ms Nabakooba warns against ‘illegal’ evictions during Covid-19 lockdown.

Adding, “Land evictions remain suspended during the lockdown. This follows a spate of attempted evictions across the country.”

Illegal land evictions have been rampant especially over the weekends and public holidays to be bypass police
