What Is The 1900 Buganda Agreement

The Uganda Agreement, 1900 (See Indigenous Agreement and Buganda Indigenous Laws, Laws of the Before the signing of the agreement, the entire buganda country belonged to the Kabaka, hence the title of Sabataka. The Uganda Herald newspaper of August 14, 1914 reproduced the oath: “I Daudi Chwa, swear that I will serve our Sovereign Lord King George V in Kabaka`s office of Buganda well and honestly and that I will do justice to all kinds of people according to the law and use of the Uganda Protectorate without fear or favor, affection of good will. While God helps me. The British wanted not only to be the masters of the kingdom and its people, but also to have a say in who the next Kabaka would be. After the death of a Kabaka, his successor is elected by a majority of votes in the Lukiiko or the local council. As a result, the three regents – Sir Apollo Kaggwa, Zakaria Kisingiri and Stanislas Mugwanya – signed on behalf of Chwa, while Sir Harry Johnson signed on behalf of King Edward VII. According to Article 6 of the agreement, the Kabakaship handed over its authority and power to the colonialists. As long as the Kabaka, chiefs and people of Uganda abate the laws and regulations established for their organization and administration of the said Kingdom of Uganda, His Majesty`s Government agrees to recognize the Kabaka as the indigenous ruler of Buganda Province under the protection and supremacy of His Majesty,” Article 6 of the agreement reads. The agreement was negotiated by Alfred Tucker, Bishop of Uganda,[5] and signed, among others, by Katikiro Apollo Kagwa of Buganda on behalf of Kabaka (Daudi Cwa II), who was then a child, and Sir Harry Johnston on behalf of the British colonial government. . .
