This Act makes provision for the administration of the adjudication of any area of Trust land designated by the Minister. The Minister may designate, by Order, Trust land to which provisions of this Act apply if: (a) the county council in whom the land is vested so requests; (b) the Minister considers it expedient that the rights and interests of persons in the land should be ascertained and registered; and (c) the Land Consolidation Act does not apply to the area. When the time for objection against registration has expired, the adjudication officer shall prepare a No Objection Register in respect of any land not subject to an objection. Where an Order is made in respect of any Trust land, the Minister shall, by notice in the Gazette, appoint a public officer to be the adjudication officer for the designated adjudication area. The adjudication officer shall follow the procedures set out in this Act for the adjudication of Trust land, shall appoint an adjudication committee and may request the Provincial Commissioner of the province in which the adjudication area lies to appoint an arbitration board for the adjudication area. The committee appointed for an adjudication section shall adjudicate in accordance with recognized customary law any question referred to it by the demarcation officer or the recording officer in respect of land proposed for adjudication. If a committee is unable to reach a decision on a matter before it, it shall refer the matter to the arbitration board for decision. The recording officer shall prepare the adjudication record for registration.
