This Order, made under section 4 of the Special Crops Act, establishes the Smallholder Sugar Authority for purposes of promoting and fostering the development of sugar-cane grown by smallholders on lands held under a sublease from the Dwangwa Sugar Corporation Limited to the Authority. “Smallholder” means a person who has been granted a right of occupancy or a tenancy under the Special Crops (Sugar-cane) (Licensing) Regulations. Save as is otherwise expressly provided by this Order, the provisions of the Special Crops (Licensing) Regulations shall not apply to smallholders licensed to grow sugar-cane on lands held under a sublease from the Dwangwa Sugar Corporation Limited to the Authority. The Authority may establish local committees for specified areas, which shall advise on any problems arising between the smallholders and the management in that area. The Authority shall, among other things, prepare and carry out sugar development schemes.
