Does Government sell or lease immovable property?

Yes, Government does sell and lease property and in such context the whole process is managed by the Lands Authority.  The disposal (whether sale, lease or the granting of other rights) of government-owned immovable property is regulated by the Disposal of Government Land Act that in general terms lays down that government immovable property may be  disposed off, that is:

(i) either via an ad hoc Resolution of the House of Representatives; or
(ii) via a public Invitation To Tender (ITT); or
(iii) in terms of a Policy Resolution approved by the House of Representatives every three years; or
(iv) in accordance with any other law.
