Buganda Agreement 1900 And 1955

2. (1) In this Constitution, „kabaka“ means the person recognized as Kabaka of Buganda under Article 2 of the Buganda Agreement of 1955, and the term „Kabaka Government“ means the government established by that Constitution for Buganda. The agreement consolidated the position of the heads of collaborators – the Catikkiro (Prime Minister), the Supreme Judge and the Treasurer, who were to receive in addition to the regents for the king children Kabaka Chwa II per year. After the adoption of the new agreement, Mutesa duly returned to Buganda[3] and the main agreement was duly signed on 18 October. [1] [3] The signatures of the Kabaka, the governor and other witnesses appear at the end of the contract. [1] I hope that this agreement will lead to a closer agreement aimed at ensuring the general well-being of all concerned. 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] Donald Anthony Low and Robert Cranford Pratt write in Buganda and British Overrule 1900-1955 that few agreements „were of such importance. Few people were so detailed, few of them acquired such importance in the relationship with the colonial people. This agreement can be cited jointly as the Buganda Accords of 1894 to 1955. Between 1953 and 1955, Uganda, part of the British-administered protectorate of Uganda, experienced great riots and discontent, after a speech in which the British Secretary of State for the Colonies gave a „temporary indication“ of the possibility of an East African federation. [3] [4] The incident sparked widespread calls for Bugandan`s independence as the only protection against British expansion. [3] [4] The third, and perhaps most important, evolution brought about by the agreement was on land. . . .
