Terms Of Buganda Agreement
(2) Under this article, as long as they comply with the provisions of the Buganda Conventions and this Constitution and respect the peace, order and good government of the Ugandan protectorate and, subject to the provisions of paragraphs 4.5 and 6 of this article, regents are fully entitled to perform the functions of Kabaka under this Constitution. After the adoption of the new agreement, Mutesa returned to Buganda and the main agreement was duly signed on 18 October.   At the end of the contract, the signatures of Kabaka, the governor and other witnesses appear.  At the request of Sir Gerald Portal, Alfred Tucker, Bishop of East Africa and later Bishop of Uganda, asked the British authorities to take control of Uganda.  On 29 May 1893, a contract between Portal and Kabaka Mwanga secured Uganda as a British protectorate. On August 27, 1894, Mwanga was forced to sign another contract with Colonel H.E. Colvile, who favoured the conventional acquisition of the territory.  Although the treaties of 1893 and 1894 were concluded because Uganda, as defined by the Berlin Conference, stumbled upon the British sphere of influence, Britain did not have the sanctity of traditional leaders and their peoples. It was important that an agreement be reached, contrary to a treaty, so that British domination would become de jure and not de facto.  This Constitution, in the presence of the governor and the representative of Lukiko, carry out a solemn undertaking with His Majesty, the Lukiko and the people of Buganda, and as long as it respects the conditions of the solemn undertaking in question, it is entitled to carry out the tasks entrusted to it by this Constitution. After further negotiations in London, Namirembe`s recommendations (with minor amendments) were adopted in July 1955 in the form of a new Buganda agreement that would „complement and, if necessary, amend“ the 1900 agreement and not replace the 1900 agreement.   The main delay was due to a conflict between Mutesa`s desire to sign the final agreement in Buganda and the British opinion that his agreement was a precondition for his return.
 The solution found was „an interim agreement that applies until Kabaka signs the main agreement in Buganda upon his return. This interim agreement will be on the same terms as the main agreement, outside the transitional arrangements, and after approval by Lukiko will be signed by Kabaka staff representatives. Six weeks after the appointment of Buganda`s ministers and the representative of the Buganda Legislative Council under the new agreements, [the British government] would allow Kabaka to return to Buganda, where it will sign the most important agreement.  The interim agreement was translated into Luganda and adopted on 15 August 1955.  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.
