The Head of State urged the residents of Rabai to use the title deeds as assets which they could use to access funds from financial institutions.

"Afadhali ujijengee mahali kwa kuishi badala ya kuenda kutafuta raha na pesa za kuuza shamba yako kwa sababu raha itaisha," he said.

He went on to say that the land could become an heirloom that the people at the coast could pass over to their children.
