South Sudan Gov’t Contracts Tech Firm to Digitize Land Titles

South Sudan Information MInister Michael Makuei Lueth

South Sudan’s ministry of lands, housing, and urban development has contracted Trinity Technologies Company to digitalize the registration of land in the country, an official said.

Addressing journalists after the cabinet meeting on Friday, Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth said the government had initially contracted Ailal Company to register land but that the latter never kick-started the process.

He said after deliberation, the cabinet decided to award the contract to Trinity Technologies Company which is expected to kick start the land registration with immediate effect.

“There was a company that was approved to digitalize registration of land and that was Ailal Company and they were given that contract to digitize and register the lands but it failed,” he said. “It could not proceed so the minister recommended that this company should be changed and Trinity Technologies Company should be the one involved so the cabinet approved the change and trinity Technologies is now the body accepted to continue with the digitalized registration of lands.”

Related to the cabinet, Minister Makuei also revealed that the council of ministers also discussed the Lamu (Kenya) Port Project in which the countries involved in the Lappset project are set to meet in Juba on an undisclosed date to discuss the progress of the project.

“The Lapsset is the organization set up between Kenya, Ethiopia, and South Sudan and is connected to the Lamu Port Project and it is also connected to the roads, railways, and the pipelines that will be passing through East Africa,” he said. “The meetings of this group are done by rotation. This time, the meeting will be held here in Juba on a date and time to be fixed later but it is agreed that this meeting takes place here in South Sudan so that we can also evaluate and see how far we have progressed in terms of implementation of our assignment within the project.”
