Mwakapalila Furaha | Henerico Evodius

Abstract: Compulsory land acquisition has been crumbed by a lot of complains from the affected people revolving around unfair compensation by the state. Such complains are common in many African countries including. This study aimed at assessing the whole process of land acquisition, participation of stakeholders and effects of land values to the people affected by acquisition projects. The study was conducted in two land acquisition projects in Ilala Municipality specifically, Kinyerezi and Kipawa Wards. The mixed approach was adopted with quantitative data collected through survey of the 97 affected people in Kipawa and Kinyerezi Wards with questionnaires attaining 69 percent of response rate. Qualitative information was sought from key project stakeholders. The quantitative analysis was done by the Relative Important Index (RII) whereas the qualitative data was analysed thematically. The results show that the determinants of land values in the compulsory land acquisition are accessibility, neighbourhood quality, plot potentiality, legal factor, national and international situation. The participation of the stakeholders was poor and people affected by these project were not satisfied with the projects. Thus, the projects carried on the acquired land are viewed negatively by the affected people since they consider that the process was unfair.
