This Act provides for the constitution of District Courts and defines their jurisdiction. The Act also concerns civil procedure and appeals against decisions of District Courts. As for jurisdiction in respect of land matters a Court does not have jurisdiction to hear or determine any action which in any way affects or is in relation to customary land but has jurisdiction to hear and determine any action for the recovery of freehold land, or any interest therein and may issue a judgment or order for the recovery of land. Such judgment or order may be enforced under a warrant for the recovery of the land.

Repealed by: District Courts Act (No. 5 of 2016). (2016-02-09)
