What Is The 1900 Buganda Agreement

Taxes on shacks and weapons have been introduced. Each cottage on a farm was taxed at four rupees a year, while each person who owned a gun paid three rupees a year, in accordance with Article 12 of the agreement. For the first time, the Kabaka and its leaders are expected to earn an annual salary from Her Majesty`s government. Article 6 dealt with Kabaka`s payments to the chief of Sazza. This was a new development in the Ganda administration. The three regents were entitled to $400 a year until the young king woke up. Kabaka is expected to receive $400 a year, Sazza bosses $200, three state officials — prime minister, chief judge and treasurer — $300 each, while Namasole (Chwa`s mother) is expected to receive $50. It was an annual tax on the shack and the arms tax. Assuming that the territory of the Kingdom of Uganda, which extends within the borders mentioned in the agreement, amounts to 19,600 square miles, it will be divided into the following proportions: by establishing Uganda`s northern border as the Kafu River, the Colvile Agreement of 1894 formalized Colvile`s promise to preserve certain areas in exchange for its support against Bunyoro. [1] Two of the “lost counties” (Buyaga and Bugangaizi) were returned to Bunyoro after the referendum on lost counties in Uganda in 1964. In 1935, Sir Philip Mitchell arrived in Uganda as governor after serving in Tanganjika for the past sixteen years. He was convinced that the relationship between Uganda and the protective power should have a different character than that of the local authorities and the Tanganjika government. [9] Recognizing that the early protectorate had produced a pattern of growing distrust and clandestine change, Mitchell devised a plan to reform and restructure the system between the protectorate government and the Buganda government.

[10] In asserting that the relationship between the protectorate government and the government of Buganda`s mother was that of protected and non-indirect domination, he planned to replace the post of provincial commissioner of Buganda with a resident and to remove district officials from the centre, provided that Kabaka was required to follow the advice of the resident and his collaborators. [9] However, under the Ugandan Convention of 1900, Kabaka was only required to respond to such advice in the case of the implementation of the Lukiiko resolutions. Relations between Kabaka, the protectorate government and its ministers deteriorated and, due to the limited power of the governor under the 1900 agreement to impose its council on Kabaka, the reorganization led to a steady decline in the influence that the protectorate government could exert in Buganda. [9] 5. The laws enacted by Her Majesty`s Government for the General Management of the Ugandan Protectorate also apply to the Kingdom of Uganda, unless they conflict with the provisions of this agreement, in which case the provisions of that agreement constitute a particular exception with respect to the Kingdom of Uganda.
