State The Buganda Agreement Of 1900

The Kabaka unrest of 1953 is another factor responsible for political change in Buganda. Kabaka`s problems were due to disagreements between Sir Andrew Cohen and Kabaka Muteesa ll and led to the Kabaka being exiled to Britain because he was unable to verify the terms of the Buganda Treaty of 1900. The crisis gave the Lukiiko absolute authority to propose who the Kabaka ministers would be, and that is why the Kabaka should be accountable to the Lukiiko and not to the British federal government, as was the case under the Buganda Treaty. The Kabaka was deprived of its right to appoint Lukiiko clients under the Buganda agreement. However, the Kabaka riots presented him with the right to appoint his officers and the Kabaka became a constitutional monarch when his position was redefined. There were many results that started from the signing of the Buganda Treaty of 1900. One of the remarkable effects of the Buganda Agreement was the elimination of the ultimate functions of kabakaship. The Kabaka was deprived of its privileges to pass regulations and lost its authority and control over the land of Buganda, which caused the land ownership system of the average person. Buganda also saw how the existing political enterprise was mixed. The dominant chiefs were placed under the authority of a representative of the colonial government, known as the Western District Officer, to whom they were attached. The range chefs, who were not used to being bought, were modified with their miners, the original chefs, to whom the acquisition of contracts was part of their daily lives. In this way, it could be easy to manipulate the puppet leaders of the British Isles, who now have the experience of receiving requests from the British Isles and not from their fellow Africans. These chiefs were found in a kind of control, known as an indirect directive, which included increased power (in cases like those in the British Isles) that told local natives (in this case African chiefs) how to govern people.

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 particular exception to the Kingdom of Uganda. 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. After the signing of the Buganda Arrangement of 1900, the restrictions imposed on Buganda and the buganda part of the country were lowered. The Ugandan country was divided into mailo countries for the Buganda government and Kronland for the British federal government. The country of the Buganda government was divided between people such as members of the royal family, the Lukiiko, the main country of Muhammad, and part of the country was ceded to private landowners, Europeans and non-natives who acquired land and whose rights were authorized by the Ugandan administration, obtain deeds of ownership for such land in this manner and with such restrictions. As Her Majesty`s representative says. Official lands granted to regents, local ministers or county chiefs must pass with the Office and their use should be assessed only for the holders of the Office. The heads of the counties obtain, in the same way, ten free arms licenses annually; all other members of the Lukiko or local council, not county chiefs, three annual gun permits and all landowners in the country with land over 500 hectares, a free annual weapon license…
