"Occupation" is defined in section 2 as "actual and bona fide farming by cultivation or with stock". Section 3 specifies terms on which conditions in title deeds in land regarding occupation shall be deemed to be satisfied. Such criteria regard construction of permanent building, cultivation or keeping of cattle or other livestock for a specified amount of time. Section 5 provides that an owner if he obtains a certificate form local authorities certifying that he has satisfied the criteria specified in section 3 is entitled to elimination of the occupation condition from the grant of the title deed. Other provisions deal with abandonment of land by a holder of a title (7), declaration of unprotected land to be derelict land (9), entries in Books of Registrar of Deeds (13), and other matters.

The UK annexed Southern Rhodesia from the former British South Africa Company in 1923. A 1961 constitution was formulated that favored whites in power. In 1965 the government unilaterally declared its independence, but the UK did not recognize the act and demanded more complete voting rights for the black African majority in the country (then called Rhodesia). UN sanctions and a guerrilla uprising finally led to free elections in 1979 and independence (as Zimbabwe) in 1980.
