Two Terms Of 1900 Buganda Agreement

The agreement was negotiated by Alfred Tucker, Bishop of Uganda,[5] and signed, among others, by Mr. Katikiro Apollo Kagwa, on behalf of Kabaka (Daudi Cwa II), then a young child, and Sir Harry Johnston on behalf of the British colonial government. Unlike the treaties of 1893 and 1894, the Ugandan Convention of 1900 included clear borders of the Kingdom of Uganda, a land ownership system and a tax policy. [3] The Ugandan agreement of March 1900 (alternatively the Mengo Treaty) formalized relations between the Kingdom of Uganda and the British protectorate of Uganda. [1] It was amended by the Buganda Convention of 1955 and the Buganda Convention of 1961. By establishing Uganda`s northern border as the Kafu River, the Colvile Agreement of 1894 formalized that Uganda would obtain certain areas in exchange for their 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. [7] In English and Luganda in Mengo, Uganda, on 10 March 1900. However, when Uganda finally gained independence, almost all the contractual terms were swept away and Uganda was no longer at the mercy of the British authorities.

After the signing of the Buganda Agreement of 1900, the restriction of other Buganda restrictions was reduced. The country of Uganda was divided for the Buganda government in Mailo country and for the British federal government in Kronland. The country of the Buganda government continued to be divided between individuals such as members of the royal family, Lukiiko, Muhammadanmain and some landowners for private landowners to 20. If, in the first two years following the signing of this agreement, the Kingdom of Uganda does not pay the Ugandan administration, the amount of national taxation is half the number of inhabitants; or should, at any time, not pay, without reason or excuse, the aforementioned minimum taxes due in relation to the population; or the Kabaka, ugandan leaders or people should at all times adopt a policy clearly unfaithful to the British protectorate; Her Majesty`s government will no longer be bound by the terms of this agreement. On the other hand, if the revenue from the shack and arms tax exceeds a total value of $45,000 per year for two years, Kabaka and district chiefs have the right to call on Her Majesty`s government to increase subsidies to Kabaka and grants for ministers and local leaders. that this increase is in the same proportional ratio as the increase in income from the taxation of indigenous peoples.
