This Act provides for the continuation of leaseholds and leasehold tenure as well as for the continued vesting of all lands in the President who has the power of alienation (land held under customary tenure is subject to certain conditions) (sect. 3). It also provides for the statutory recognition and continuation of customary tenure (sect. 7), for the conversion of customary tenure into leasehold tenure (sect. 8) and establishes a Land Development Fund and Lands Tribunal (Parts III and IV). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any other law, instrument or document, but subject to this Act, all land in Zambia shall vest absolutely in the President and shall be held by him in perpetuity for and on behalf of the people of Zambia. The President may alienate land vested in him to any Zambian. The President shall not alienate any land situated in a district or an area where land is held under customary tenure. Any person aggrieved with a direction or decision of a person in authority may apply to the Lands Tribunal for determination (sect. 15). (32 sections)
