Central Region: Over 30,000 Nationals Allotted Tiessa Land Over The Past 10 Years

More than 30,000 nationals in the Central region who fulfilled their national obligation received Tiessa land over the past 10 years, according to Mr.  Mengisteab Habtetsion, head of the Ministry of Labor and Human Welfare branch in the region.

Asmara, 1 December 2010 – More than 30,000 nationals in the Central region who fulfilled their national obligation received Tiessa land over the past 10 years, according to Mr.  Mengisteab Habtetsion, head of the Ministry of Land, Water and Environment branch in the region. 

He explained that a number of villages in the region were allotted Tiessa land in accordance with the newly drafted master plan, while others conducted the allotment process in collaboration with the regional Administration.  Mr. Mengisteab further indicated that almost all nationals living in their place of birth received agricultural land in 2007/2008.

Noting that land distribution program has temporarily halted for the purpose of ensuring efficiency, he outlined the impediments encountered in the process such as construction of major dams in the envisaged land, lack of master plan and remoteness of the proposed land allotment sites from the respective villages, among others.

Mr. Mengisteab went on to say that selling Tiessa land is illegal and that it should only be utilized for the set purpose. In this connection, he asserted that punitive action would be taken against those individuals who resort to buying and selling of Tiessa land.
