  • The Rent-to-Own Property Ownership Landscape in Kenya: A collaborative article by @Cindy Terry from CMPD and @Cynthia Kitolo of @Property Boutique. This guide provides valuable insights for those considering rent-to-own property ownership in Kenya.

  • Harnessing Rwanda’s Land to Transform its Agricultural Sector: This article by @Elias Tugume and @Counsel A. Arrey-Ako from our Rwanda team discusses the opportunities and challenges of using land to develop the agricultural sector in Rwanda. 

I am particularly excited about the article on the influence of technology in real estate. As a long-time resident of East Africa, I have witnessed how technology has transformed our lives and work dynamics. This article provides a glimpse into how technology is also having a major impact on the real estate industry, both in terms of opportunities and challenges. 

We would also like to extend an invitation to our upcoming online webinar, hosted by @KPDA, tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. This session will be led by Cindy Terry and @Ambrose Waigwa and will focus on the nuances of Green Building Regulation. Details are available on the @KPDA website. 

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our talented team of designers and marketers for their brilliant work on this issue. @Kevin Kimani, @Anne Kaesa, @Cliff Odhiambo, @Veronica Ndung’u, and Joseph Ndung’u have all contributed their unique vision and artistry to create a magazine that truly embodies the spirit of CM Property Digest.
