Terms Of Buganda Agreement 1900

The Kingdom of Uganda is subject to the same customs provisions, Porter Regulations, etc., which, with The agreement of His Majesty, may be introduced for the Uganda Protectorate in general, which may be, in a certain sense, called external taxation, but which cannot be imposed on the natives of the province of Uganda without the agreement of the Kabaka any other internal taxation other than the tax on huts. which, in this case, is guided by the majority of votes in its original council. The agreement was negotiated by Alfred Tucker, Bishop of Uganda,[5] and signed, among others, by the Catikiro of Buganda, Apollo Kagwa, on behalf of the Kabaka (Daudi Cwa II), who was then an infant, and Sir Harry Johnston on behalf of the British colonial government. 5. Laws passed by Her Majesty`s Government for the general administration of the Protectorate of Uganda shall also apply to the Kingdom of Uganda, unless they are in particular contradiction with the provisions of this Agreement, in which case the provisions of this Agreement shall constitute a special exception to the Kingdom of Uganda. The agreement stipulated that the Kabaka were to exercise direct dominion over the natives of Buganda by delivering justice through Lukiiko and his officials. [6] He also consolidated the power of the head of Bakungu`s largely Protestant clientele, led by Kagwa. The British sent few officials to run the country, relying mainly on Bakungu chiefs. For decades, they were privileged because of their political skill, Christianity, friendly relations with the British, ability to collect taxes, and Entebbe`s proximity to the Ugandan capital. In the 1920s, British administrators were more confident and had less need for military or administrative support. [4] By defining Uganda`s northern border as the Kafu River, the Colvile Agreement of 1894 formalized the promise that Uganda would receive certain areas in exchange for their support for the Bunyoro. [1] Two of the „lost counties“ (Buyaga and Bugangaizi) were returned to the Bunyoro after the 1964 referendum on the lost Ugandan provinces. [7] 20.
