Government has disclosed that it will next month introduce a computerized land administration system that will help capture data.
Lands Minister Wilbur Simuusa has told QFM news that once the computerized system to capture data has been installed,the ministry will then embark on a countrywide land audit.
Mr. Simuusa believes that having an electronic system will help in storing information in a more secure manner.
The minister has also observed that there are a lot of weaknesses in the land policy and laws that govern the administration of land in the country.
Mr. Simuusa has added that the ministry will therefore begin to review the Land Act and strengthen it to ensure that it begins to serve the interests of the Zambians.
He further observed that there is need for the laws which govern customary and state land to be harmonized.
Last week, President Michael Sata when he swore-in lands permanent secretary Daisy Ng'ambi bemoaned the high levels of corruption in the country's land administration system.
The President Sata said there was need for the laws which state that Zambians need to be given priority when it comes to land allocation as opposed to the current situation where most of the land gazetted as markets has been taken up by foreigners.
