Abstract:The theme of this paper is the array of legislation controlling African tenancy on white-owned farmland. This legislation spread from South Africa (the Cape, 1869; Transvaal, 1887; Orange Free State, 1893; Southern Rhodesia, 1908; Nyasaland, 1917; Kenya, 1918). In each case, the legislation had a common purpose - to deny to Africans use of white-owned land, except in the capacity of labourars. In each case, the form the legislation took, although derived from South African practice, was determinated by the particular constellation of forces in the political economy at the time. The core of this study is an examination of the Southern Rhodesia Private Locations Ordinance of 1908, and of its application. The essay has three parts: The economic conditions of labour tenancy - The spread of legislation and the Southern Rhodesia PLO - The ending of labour tenancy. Notes.
