Effects Of Buganda Agreement Of 1900

Assuming that the area of the Kingdom of Uganda, as it exists within the borders mentioned in the agreement, amounts to 19,600 square miles, it will be divided into the following parts: after the signing of the Buganda Agreement of 1900, the reduction of the restrictions imposed on Buganda and the part of the buganda country was made. 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 individuals such as members of the royal family, the Lukiiko, the main Muhammad country and part of the country was ceded to private landowners The signature in 1900 was obtained after years of negotiations under the leadership of Bishop Alfred Tucker. No wonder the Anglican Church under the Church Missionary Society took the lion`s share in the new government after the signing of the agreement. The agreement had three sections: power-sharing, the system of public finances and the country. But there were difficulties because Kabaka Chwa was only a miner who did not keep the negotiations. Unlike the treaties of 1893 and 1894, the Ugandan Agreement of 1900 contained clear boundaries of the Ugandan kingdom, a system of land ownership, and a fiscal policy. [3] While both Mwanga and Kabaka had mobilized more than 2,000 weapons in his revolt less than five years earlier, his son and successors could only have had less than a tenth – and demanded licenses from the British for it. Second, the agreement attempted to outline a legal framework defining the role of the Lukiiko, who would in fact now share power with the Kabaka. Here too, the British gave with one hand and took with the other; While the Kabaka had the power to appoint honoraria that sat on the Council with district chiefs, it could not dismiss them without the agreement of colonial officials.

The 1900 agreement also had other consequences, including the allocation of Buganda, which was considered a privileged position in relations with the colonial government. (Although the British signed agreements with Toro in 1900 and with Ankole in 1901, they were not as detailed or privileged, while they did not bother to sign such agreements with the other territories that, over time, were part of the protectorate.) It should be noted that none of the other kingdoms had signed earlier treaties that recognized or accepted Britain`s protection, as Buganda had done. 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 matter, is guided by the majority of votes in its original council. . . .
