The Uganda Agreement of 1900
See Webmaster's Note.

We, the undersigned, to wit, Sir Henry Hamilton Johnston, K.C.B., Her
Majesty's Special Commissioner, Commander-in-Chief and Consul-General
for the Uganda Protectorate and the adjoining Territories, on behalf
of Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, Empress of
India, on the one part; and the under-mentioned Regents and chiefs of
the Kingdom of Uganda on behalf of the Kabaka (King) of Uganda, and
the chiefs and people of Uganda, on the other part: do hereby agree to
the following Articles relative to the government and administration
of the Kingdom of Uganda.

1 The boundaries of the Kingdom of Uganda shall be the following:
starting from the left bank of the Victoria Nile at the Ripon Falls,
the boundary shall follow the left bank of the Victoria Nile into Lake
Kioga, and thence shall be continued along the centre of Lake Kioga,
and again along the Victoria Nile as far as the confluence of the
River Kafu, opposite the town of Mruli. From this point the boundary
shall be carried along the right or eastern bank of the River Kafu, up
stream, as far as the junction of the Kafu and Embaia. From this point
the boundary shall be carried in a straight line to the River Nkusi,
and shall follow the left bank of the River Nkusi down stream to its
entrance into the Albert Nyanza. The boundary shall then be carried
along the coast of the Albert Nyanza in a south-westerly direction as
far as the mouth of the River Kuzizi, and thence shall be carried up
stream along the right bank of the river Kuzizi to near its source.
From a point near the source of the Kuzizi and near the village of
Kirola (such point to be finally determined by Her Majesty's
Commissioner at the time of the definite Survey of Uganda) the
boundary shall be carried in a south-westerly direction until it
reaches the River Nabutari, the left bank of which it will follow down
stream to its confluence with the River Katonga. The boundary shall
then be carried up stream along the left bank of the River Katonga, as
far as the point opposite the confluence of the Chungaga, after which,
crossing the Katonga, the boundary shall be carried along the right
bank of the said Chungaga River up stream to its source; and from its
source the boundary shall be drawn in a south-easterly direction to
the point where the Byoloba River enters Lake Kachira; and shall then
be continued along the centre of Lake Kachira to its south-eastern
extremity, where the River Bukova leaves the lake, from which point
the boundary shall be carried in a south-easterly direction to the
Anglo-German frontier. The boundary shall then follow the Anglo-German
frontier to the coast of the Victoria Nyanza and thence shall be drawn
across the waters of the Victoria Nyanza in such a manner as to
include within the limits of the Kingdom of Uganda the Sese
Archipelago (including Kosi and Mazinga), Ugaya, Lufu, Igwe, Buvuma,
and Lingira Islands. The boundary, after including Lingira Islands,
shall be carried through Napoleon Gulf until it reaches the starting
point of its definition at Bugungu at the Ripon Falls on the Victoria
Nile. To avoid any misconception it is intended by this definition to
include within the boundaries of Uganda all the islands lying off the
north-west coast of the Victoria Nyanza in addition to those specially

2 The Kabaka and chiefs of Uganda hereby agree henceforth to renounce
in favour of Her Majesty the Queen any claims to tribute they may have
had on the adjoining provinces of the Uganda Protectorate.

3 The Kingdom of Uganda in the administration of Uganda Protectorate
shall rank as a province of equal rank with any other provinces into
which the Protectorate may be divided.

4 The revenue of the Kingdom of Uganda, collected by the Uganda
Administration, will be merged in the general revenue of the Uganda
Protectorate, as will that of the other provinces of this

5 The laws made for the general governance of the Uganda Protectorate
by Her Majesty's Government will be equally applicable to the Kingdom
of Uganda, except in so far as they may in any particular conflict
with the terms of this Agreement, in which case the terms of this
Agreement will constitute a special exception in regard to the Kingdom
of Uganda.

6 So long as the Kabaka, Chiefs, and people of Uganda shall conform to
the laws and regulations instituted for their governance by Her
Majesty's Government and shall co-operate loyally with Her Majesty's
Government in the organization and administration of the said Kingdom
of Uganda, Her Majesty's Government agrees to recognize the Kabaka of
Uganda as the native ruler of the province of Uganda under Her
Majesty's protection and over-rule. The King of Uganda shall
henceforth be styled His Highness the Kabaka of Uganda. On the death
of a Kabaka, his successor shall be elected by a majority of votes in
the Lukiko, or native council. The range of selection, however, must
be limited to the Royal Family of Uganda, that is to say, to the
descendants of King Mutesa. The name of the person chosen by the
native council must be submitted to Her Majesty's Government for
approval, and no person shall be recognized as Kabaka of Uganda whose
election has not received the approval of Her Majesty's Government.
The jurisdiction of the native Court of the Kabaka of Uganda, however,
shall not extend to any person not a native of the Uganda province.
The Kabaka's courts shall be entitled to try natives for capital
crimes, but no death sentence may be carried out by the Kabaka, or his
Courts, without the sanction of Her Majesty's representative in
Uganda. Moreover, there will be a right of appeal from the native
Courts to the principle Court of Justice established by Her Majesty in
the Kingdom of Uganda as regards all sentences which inflict a term of
more than five years' imprisonment or a fine of over £100. In the case
of any other sentences imposed by the Kabaka's Courts, which may seem
to Her Majesty's Government disproportioned or inconsistent with
humane principles, Her Majesty's representatives in Uganda shall have
the right of remonstrance with the Kabaka, who shall, at the request
of the said representative, subject such sentence to reconsideration.

The Kabaka of Uganda shall be guaranteed by Her Majesty's Government
from out of the local revenue of the Uganda Protectorate a minimum
yearly allowance of £500 a year.

During the present Kabaka's minority, however, in lieu of the
above-mentioned subvention, there will be paid to the master of his
household, to meet his household expenditure, WO a year, and during
his minority the three persons appointed to act as Regents will
receive an annual salary of £400 a year. Kabakas of Uganda will be
understood to have attained their majority when they have reached the
age of 18 years. The Kabaka of Uganda shall be entitled to a salute of
nine guns on ceremonial occasions when such salutes are customary.

7 The Namasole, or mother of the present Kabaka. (Chua), shall be paid
during her lifetime an allowance at the rate of £50 a year. This
allowance shall not necessarily be continued to the mothers of other

8 All cases, civil or criminal, of a mixed nature, where natives of
the Uganda province and non-natives of that province are concerned,
shall be subject to British Courts of Justice only.

9 For purposes of native administration the Kingdom of Uganda shall be
divided into the following districts or administrative counties:

(1) Kiagwe

(6) Buyaga

(11) Butambala (Bweya)

(16) Sese

(2) Bugerere

(7) Bwekula

(12) Kiadondo

(17) Buddu

(3) Bulemezi

(8) Singo

(13) Busiro

(18) Koki

(4) Buruli

(9) Busuju

(14) Mawokoto

(19) Mawogola

(5) Bugangadzi

(10) Gomba (Butunzi)

(15) Buvuma

(20) Kabula

At the head of each county shall be placed a chief who shall be
selected by the Kabaka's Government, but whose name shall be submitted
for approval to Her Majesty's representative. This chief, when
approved by Her Majesty's representative, shall be guaranteed from out
of the revenue of Uganda a salary at the rate of E200 a year. To the
chief of a county will be entrusted by Her Majesty's Government, and
by the Kabaka, the task of administering justice among the natives
dwelling in his county, the assessment and collection of taxes, the
upkeep of the main roads, and the general supervision of native
affairs. On all questions but the assessment and collection of taxes
the chief of the county will report direct to the King's native
ministers, from whom he will receive his instructions. When
arrangements have been made by Her Majesty's Government for the
organization of a police force in the province of Uganda, a certain
number of police will be placed at the disposal of each chief of a
county to assist him in maintaining order. For the assessment and
payment of taxes, the chief of a county shall be immediately
responsible to Her Majesty's representative, and should he fail in his
duties in this respect, Her Majesty's representative shall have the
right to call upon the Kabaka to dismiss him from his duties and
appoint another chief in his stead. In each county an estate, not
exceeding an area of 8 square miles, shall be attributed to the
chieftainship of a county, and its usufruct shall be enjoyed by the
person occupying, for the time being, the position of chief of the

10 To assist the Kabaka of Uganda in the government of his people he
shall be allowed to appoint three native Officers of State, with the
sanction and approval of Her Majesty's representative in Uganda
(without whose sanction such appointments shall not be valid)-a Prime
Minister, otherwise known as Katikiro; a Chief Justice; and a
Treasurer or Controller of the Kabaka's revenues. These officials
shall be paid at the rate of £300 a year. Their salaries shall be
guaranteed them by Her Majesty's Government from out of the funds of
the Uganda Protectorate. During the minority of the Kabaka these three
officials shall be constituted the Regents, and when acting in that
capacity shall receive salary at the rate of £400 a year. Her
Majesty's chief representative in Uganda shall at any time have direct
access to the Kabaka, and shall have the power of discussing matters
affecting Uganda with the Kabaka alone or, during his minority, with
the Regents, but ordinarily the three officials above designated will
transact most of the Kabaka's business with the Uganda Administration.
The Katikiro shall be ex officio the President of the Lukiko, or
native council; the Vice-President of the Lukiko shall be the native
Minister of Justice for the time being; in the absence of both Prime
Minister and Minister of Justice, the Treasurer of the Kabaka's
revenues, or third minister, shall preside over the meetings of the

11 The Lukiko, or native council, shall be constituted as follows: 'In
addition to the three native ministers who shall be ex officio senior
members of the council, each chief of a county (twelve in all) shall
be ex officio a member of the Council. Also each chief of a county
shall be permitted to appoint a person to act as his lieutenant in
this respect to attend the meetings of the council during his absence,
and to speak and vote in his name. The chief of a county, however, and
his lieutenant may not both appear simultaneously at the council. In
addition, the Kabaka shall select from each county three notables,
whom he shall appoint during his pleasure, to be members of the Lukiko
or native council. The Kabaka may at any time deprive any individual
of the right to sit on the native council, but in such a case shall
intimate his intention to Her Majesty's representative in Uganda, and
receive his assent thereto before dismissing the member. The functions
of the council will be to discuss all matters concerning the native
administration of Uganda, and to forward to the Kabaka resolutions
which may be voted by a majority regarding measures to be adopted by
the said administration. The Kabaka shall further consult with Her
Majesty's representative in Uganda before giving effect to any such
resolutions voted by the native council, and shall, in this matter,
explicitly follow the advice of Her Majesty's representative. The
Lukiko, or a committee thereof, shall be a Court of Appeal from the
decisions of the Courts of the First Instances held by the chiefs of
counties. In all cases affecting property exceeding the value of £5,
or imprisonment exceeding one week, an appeal for revision may be
addressed to the Lukiko. In all cases involving property or claims
exceeding £100 in value, or a sentence of imprisonment exceeding five
years, or sentences of death, the Lukiko shall refer the matter to the
consideration of the Kabaka, whose decision when countersigned by Her
Majesty's chief representative in Uganda shall be final. The Lukiko
shall not decide any questions affecting the persons or property of
Europeans or others who are not natives of Uganda. No person may be
elected to the Lukiko who is not a native of the Kingdom of Uganda. No
question of religious opinion shall be taken into consideration in
regard to the appointment by the Kabaka of members of the council. In
this matter he shall use his judgement and abide by the advice of Her
Majesty's representative, assuring in this manner a fair proportionate
representation of all recognised expressions of religious belief
prevailing in Uganda.'

12 In order to contribute to a reasonable extent towards the general
cost of the maintenance of the Uganda Protectorate, there shall be
established the following taxation for Imperial purposes, that is to
say, the proceeds of the collection of these taxes shall be handed
over intact to Her Majesty's representative in Uganda as the
contribution of the Uganda province towards the general revenue of the

The taxes agreed upon at present shall be the following:

'(a) A hut tax of three rupees, or 4s. per annum, on any house, hut or
habitation used as a dwelling-place.

(b) A gun tax of three rupees, or 4s. per annum, to be paid by any
person who possesses or uses a gun, rifle or pistol.'

The Kingdom of Uganda shall be subject to the same Customs
Regulations, Porter Regulations, and so forth, which may, with the
approval of Her Majesty, be instituted for the Uganda Protectorate
generally, which may be described in a sense as exterior taxation, but
no further interior taxation, other than the hut tax, shall be imposed
on the natives of the province of Uganda without the agreement of the
Kabaka, who in this matter shall be guided by the majority of votes in
his native council. This arrangement, however, will not affect the
question of township rates, lighting rates, water rates, market dues,
and so forth, which may be treated apart as matters affecting
municipalities or townships; nor will it absolve natives from
obligations as regards military service, or the up-keep of main roads
passing through the lands on which they dwell. A hut tax shall be
levied on any building which is used as a dwelling-place. A collection
of not more than four huts, however, which are in a separate and
single enclosure and are inhabited only by a man and his wife, or
wives, may be counted as one hut. The following buildings will be
exempted from the hut tax: temporary shelters erected in the fields
for the purposes of watching plantations; or rest houses erected by
the roadside for passing travellers; buildings used solely as tombs,
churches, mosques or schools, and not slept in or occupied as a
dwelling; the residence of the Kabaka and his household (not to exceed
fifty buildings in number); the residence of the Namasole, or Queen
Mother (not to exceed twenty in number); the official residences of
the three native ministers, and of all the chiefs of counties (not to
exceed ten buildings in number); but in the case of dispute as to the
liability of a building to pay hut tax, the matter must be referred to
the collector for the province of Uganda, whose decision must be
final. The collector of a province may also authorize the chief of a
county to exempt from taxation any person whose condition of
destitution may, in the opinion of the collector, make payment of such
tax an impossibility. By collector is meant the principal British
official representing the Uganda Administration in the province of

The representative of Her Majesty's Government in the Uganda
Protectorate may from time to time direct that in the absence of
current coin, a hut or gun tax may be paid in produce or in labour
according to a scale which shall be laid down by the said
representative. As regards the gun tax, it will be held to apply to
any person who possesses or makes use of a gun, rifle, pistol, or any
weapon discharging a projectile by the aid of gunpowder, dynamite or
compressed air. The possession of any cannon or machine gun is hereby
forbidden to any native of Uganda. A native who pays a gun tax may
possess or use as many as five guns. For every five or for every
additional gun up to five, which he may be allowed to possess or use,
he will have to pay another tax. Exemptions from the gun tax will,
however, be allowed to the following extent: 'The Kabaka will be
credited with fifty gun licences free, by which he may arm as many as
fifty of his household. The Queen mother will, in like manner, be
granted ten free licences annually, by which she may arm as many as
ten persons of her household; each of the three native ministers
(Katikiro, Native Chief Justice, and Treasurer of the Kabaka's
revenue) shall be granted twenty free gun licences annually, by which
they may severally arm twenty persons of their household. Chiefs of
counties will be similarly granted ten annual free gun licences; all
other members of the Lukiko or native council, not Chiefs of counties,
three annual gun licences, and all landed proprietors in the county,
with estates exceeding 500 acres in extent, one free annual gun

13 Nothing in this Agreement shall be held to invalidate the
preexisting right of the Kabaka of Uganda to call upon every
ablebodied male among his subjects for military service in defence of
the country; but the Kabaka henceforth will only exercise this right
of conscription, or of levying native troops, under the advice of Her
Majesty's principal representative in the Protectorate. In times of
peace, the armed forces, organized by the Uganda Administration, will
probably be sufficient for all purposes of defence, but if Her
Majesty's representative is of opinion that the force of Uganda should
be strengthened at any time, he may call upon the Kabaka to exercise
in a full or in a modified degree his claim on the Baganda people for
military service. In such an event the arming and equipping of such
force would be undertaken by the administration of the Uganda

14 All main public roads traversing the Kingdom of Uganda and all
roads the making of which shall at any time be decreed by the native
council with the assent of Her Majesty's representative, shall be
maintained in good repair by the chief of the Saza (or county) through
which the road runs. The chief of a county shall have the right to
call upon each native town, village, or commune, to furnish labourers
in the proportion of one to every three huts or houses, to assist in
keeping the established roads in repair, provided that no labourers
shall be called upon to work on the roads for more than one month in
each year. Europeans and all foreigners whose lands abut on
established main roads, will be assessed by the Uganda Administration
and required to furnish either labour or to pay a labour rate in money
as their contribution towards the maintenance of the highways. When
circumstances permit, the Uganda Administration may further make
grants from out of its Public Works Department, for the construction
of new roads or any special repairs to existing highways, of an
unusually expensive character.

15 The land of the Kingdom of Uganda shall be dealt with in the
following manner: Assuming the area of the Kingdom of Uganda, as
comprised within the limits cited in this agreement, to amount to
19,600 square miles, it shall be divided in the following proportions:
Square miles
Forests to be brought under control of the Uganda Administration 1,500
Waste and uncultivated land to be vested in Her Majesty's Government,
and to be controlled by the Uganda Administration 9,000
Plantations and other private property of His Highness the Kabaka of Uganda 350
Plantations and other private property of the Namasole
(Note.-If the present Kabaka died and another Namasole were appointed,
the existing one would be permitted to retain as her personal property
6 square miles, passing on 10 square miles as the endowment of every
succeeding Namasole.) 16
Plantations and other private property of the Namasole, Mother of Mwanga 10
To the Princes: Joseph, Augustine, Rarnazan, and Yusufu-Suna, 8 square
miles each 32
For the Princesses, sisters, and relations of the Kabaka 90

To the Abamasaza (chiefs of counties), twenty in all 8 square miles
each (private property): 160

Official estates attached to the posts of the Abamasaza, 8 square
miles each: 160

The three Regents will receive private property to the extent of 16
square miles each: 48

And official property attached to their office, 16 square miles each,
the said official property to be afterwards attached to the posts of
the three native ministers: 48
Mbogo (the Muhammedan chief) will receive for himself and his adherents 24
Kamswaga, chief of Koki, will receive 20
One thousand chiefs and private landowners will receive the estates of
which they are already in possession, and which are computed at an
acreage of 8 square miles per individual, making atotal of 8,000
There will be allotted to the three missionary societies in existence
in Uganda as private property, and in trust for the native churches,
as much as 92
Land taken up by the Government for Government stations prior to the
present settlement (at Kampala, Entebbe, Masaka, etc., etc.) 50
Total 19,600

After a careful survey of the Kingdom of Uganda has been made, if the
total area should be found to be less than 19,600, then that portion
of the country which is to be vested in Her Majesty's Government shall
be reduced in extent by the deficiency found to exist in the estimated
area. Should, however, the area of Uganda be established at more than
19,600 square miles, then the surplus shall be dealt with as follows:

'It shall be divided into two parts, one-half shall be added to the
amount of land which is vested in Her Majesty's Government, and the
other half will be divided proportionately among the properties of the
Kabaka, the three Regents or native ministers, and the Abamasaza, or
chiefs of counties.

'The aforesaid 9,000 square miles of waste or cultivated, or
uncultivated land, or land occupied without prior gift of the Kabaka
or chiefs by bakopi or strangers, are hereby vested in Her Majesty the
Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, Empress of India, and Protectress
of Uganda, on the understanding that the revenue derived from such
lands shall form part of the general revenue of the Uganda

'The forests, which will be reserved for Government control, will be,
as a rule, those forests over which no private claim can be raised
justifiably, and will be forests of some continuity, which should be
maintained as woodland in the general interests of the country.

'As regards the allotment of the 8,000 square miles among the 1,000
private landowners, this will be a matter to be left to the decision
of the Lukiko, with an appeal to the Kabaka. The Lukiko will be
empowered to decide as to the validity of claims, the number of
claimants and the extent of land granted, premising that the total
amount of land thus allotted amongst the chiefs and accorded to native
landowners of the country is not to exceed 8,000 square miles.

'Europeans and non-natives, who have acquired estates, and whose
claims thereto have been admitted by the Uganda Administration, will
receive title-deeds for such estates in such manner and with such
limitations, as may be formulated by Her Majesty's representative. The
official estates granted to the Regents, native ministers, or chiefs
of counties, are to pass with the office, and their use is only to be
enjoyed by the holders of the office.

'Her Majesty's Government, however, reserves to itself the right to
carry through or construct roads, railways, canals, telegraphs or
other useful public works, or to build military forts or works of
defence on any property, public or private, with the condition that
not more than 10 per centum of the property in question shall be taken
up for these purposes without compensation, and that compensation
shall be given for the disturbance of growing crops or of buildings.'

16 Until Her Majesty's Government has seen fit to devise and
promulgate forestry regulations, it is not possible in this Agreement
to define such forests rights as may be given to the natives of
Uganda; but it is agreed on behalf of Her Majesty's Government, that
in arranging these forestry regulations, the claims of the Baganda.
people to obtain timber for building purposes, firewood, and other
products of the forests or uncultivated lands, shall be taken into
account, and arrangements made by which under due safeguards against
abuse these rights may be exercised gratis.

17 As regards mineral rights. The rights to all minerals found on
private estates shall be considered to belong only to the owners of
these estates, subject to a 10 per centum ad valorem duty, which shall
be paid to the Uganda Administration when the minerals are worked. On
the land outside private estates, the mineral rights shall belong to
the Uganda Administration, which, however, in return for using or
disposing of the same must compensate the occupier of the soil for the
disturbance of growing crops or buildings, and will be held liable to
allot to him from out of the spare lands in the Protectorate an equal
area of soil to that from which he has been removed. On these waste
and uncultivated lands of the Protectorate, the mineral rights shall
be vested in Her Majesty's Government as represented by the Uganda
Administration. In like manner the ownership of the forests, which are
not included within the limits of private properties, shall be
henceforth vested in Her Majesty's Government.

18 In return for the cession to Her Majesty's Government of the right
of control over 10,550 square miles of waste, cultivated,
uncultivated, or forest lands, there shall be paid by Her Majesty's
Government in trust for the Kabaka (upon his attaining his majority) a
sum of £500, and to the three Regents collectively, £600, namely, to
the Katikiro £300, and the other two Regents £150 each.

19 Her Majesty's Government agrees to pay to the Muhammedan Uganda
Chief, Mbogo, a pension for life of £250 a year, on the understanding
that all rights which he may claim (except such as are guaranteed in
the foregoing clauses) are ceded to Her Majesty's Government.

20 Should the Kingdom of Uganda fail to pay to the Uganda
Administration during the first two years after the signing of this
Agreement, an amount of native taxation, equal to half that which is
due in proportion to the number of inhabitants; or should it at any
time fail to pay without just cause or excuse, the aforesaid minimum
of taxation due in proportion to the population, or should the Kabaka,
Chiefs, or people of Uganda pursue, at any time, a policy which is
distinctly disloyal to the British Protectorate; Her Majesty's
Government will no longer consider themselves bound by the terms of
this Agreement.

On the other hand, should the revenue derived from the hut and gun tax
exceed two years running a total value of £45,000 a year, the Kabaka
and chiefs of counties shall have the right to appeal to Her Majesty's
Government for an increase in the subsidy given to the Kabaka, and the
stipends given to the native ministers and chiefs, such increase to be
in the same proportional relation as the increase in the revenue
derived from the taxation of the natives.

21 Throughout this Agreement the phrase 'Uganda Administration' shall
be taken to mean that general government of the Uganda Protectorate,
which is instituted and maintained by Her Majesty's Government; 'Her
Majesty's representative' shall mean the Commissioner, High
Commissioner, Governor, or principal official of any designation who
is appointed by Her Majesty's Government to direct the affairs of

22 In the interpretation of this Agreement the English text shall be
the version which is binding on both parties.

Note: The term "Uganda" is from the Swahili and means "Land of the
Ganda". Originally, (and as used throughout the above agreement) this
term applied only to the Buganda kingdom. As British colonial control
expanded outwards from this central territory, the term was retained
for the whole Protectorate. The central territory was distinguished
from the wider colony by using its indiginous name of Buganda.
