Sierra Leone’s Constitution grants married and unmarried women equal ownership rights to propertyand yet while women constitute the largest group of agricultural labourers, but they rarely have full access to land. There are two main types of farmland ownership in Sierra Leone: one based on customary laws and traditions and the other based on the statutory freehold, or community, system. While statutory law governs the capital, Freetown, and its surroundings, customary law – under the heads of ruling families known as paramount chiefs – governs the provinces (customary law applies in 12 of Sierra Leone’s 14 districts). The section should be clearer on the fact that the Devolution of Estates Act does not apply to the majority of the land in Sierra Leone:
Section 27 of the Constitution of Sierra Leone provides against any law that is discriminatory, with the exception (subsection (4d)) of laws that make provisions with respect to adoption, marriage, divorce, burial, devolution of property or other interests of personal law.
