Who Signed The Buganda Agreement In 1900

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] 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. Assuming that the territory of the Kingdom of Uganda, which consists within the borders mentioned in the agreement, amounts to 19,600 square miles, it will be divided into the following proportions: the agreement was negotiated by Alfred Tucker, Bishop of Uganda,[5] and signed among others by The Bugandas Katikiro Apollo Kagwa on behalf of the Kabaka (Daudiwa II) who was a young child at that time. and Sir Harry Johnston, on behalf of the British colonial government. The kabaka site was founded by Kabaka Mwanga II and the largest palace to date serves as the official residence of the last 6 kings of the Kingdom of Buganda. The word Twekobe gathers in unity for a cause, from where the inhabitants of Buganda gathered to build a palace for Kabaka on Mengo Hill, and it was in the palace that the Buganda Agreement was signed in 1900, which defined the future of Uganda. 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] We, the undersigned, signed Sir Henry Hamilton Johnston, K.C.B, Her Majesty`s Special Commissioner, Commander-in-Chief and Consul General for the Ugandan protectorate and the neighbouring territories, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, Empress of Lndia; And the regents and sub-appointed chiefs of the Kingdom of Uganda, on behalf of the Kabaka (kings) of Uganda, and the Ugandan chiefs and people, on the other, agree with the following articles concerning the government and administration of the Kingdom of Uganda.
