Copy Of 1900 Buganda Agreement

Taxes on huts and weapons were introduced. Each cottage on a farm was taxed four rupees per year, while each person holding a weapon paid three rupees a year for the weapon, in accordance with Article 12 of the agreement. For the first time, the Kabaka and its chiefs are expected to earn an annual salary from Her Majesty`s government. Article 6 dealt with Kabaka`s payments to the sazza chief. This was a new development within the Ganda administration. The three regents were entitled to £400 a year until the young king`s age of majority. The Kabaka are expected to receive £400 a year, the Sazza chiefs £200, the three civil servants – Prime Minister, Supreme Judge and Treasurer – £300 each, while the Namasole (Chwa`s mother) is expected to receive £50. This was an annual fee levied by the tax on huts and weapons. 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] The land of Mailo was divided into members of the royal family, officials of the kingdom and a few individuals. The other beneficiaries were religious institutions. When the agreement was signed, it was estimated that the figures for the areas allocated were estimated. After the interrogation, the parties had to meet and conclude what the agreement had decided after the award.

This culminated in 1913 with the attribution of Buganda Agreement.As following Article 15, the natives who did not fall into the categories of people to whom the land was allocated were rendered landless. They became squatters. The agreement also introduced the tax system to finance the new administrative structure. On Tuesday, March 10, exactly 120 years have passed since the kingdom of Buganda under Kabaka (king) Daudi Chwa jumped to bed with the British. Not only did the signing of the agreement take away the Kingdom`s rights, but it also paved the way for sponsorship and looting of other parts of Uganda. The agreement consolidated British rule in Buganda and also gave the Baganda the opportunity to extend their influence to other parts of the country. Territories that were not under the kingdoms were taken over by the Neocolonians of Buganda like Semei Kakungulu. The 1900 Uganda Agreement (see Native Agreement and Buganda Native Laws, Laws of the Kingdom of Uganda) is subject to the same customs provisions, Porter Regulations, etc., which, with Her Majesty`s agreement, can be put in place for the Uganda Protectorate in general, which can be described in a certain sense as external taxation, but no other internal taxation, with the exception of the shack tax, can be imposed on the indigenous people of Uganda province without the agreement of the Kabaka, who in this case is guided by a majority of votes in his home council. The Uganda Agreement (the Treaty of Mengo) of March 1900 formalized relations between the Kingdom of Uganda and the protectorate of British Uganda.
