Terms Used In Buganda Agreement
5. The laws enacted by Her Majesty`s Government for the General Management of the Ugandan Protectorate apply in the same way to the Kingdom of Uganda, unless they conflict with the provisions of this agreement, the provisions of this agreement being a special exception for the Kingdom of Uganda. The agreement was negotiated by Alfred Tucker, Bishop of Uganda, and signed, among others, by Mr. Katikiro Apollo Kagwa, on behalf of Kabaka (Daudi Cwa II), then a young child, and Sir Harry Johnston on behalf of the British colonial government. The following buildings are exempt from the shack tax: emergency shelters built in the fields to observe plantations; or nursing homes in the fields for planting observation; or rest areas built on the side of the road for passing travellers; Buildings exclusively used as tombs, churches, mosques. or schools, which are not asleep or occupied as housing; Kabaka`s residence and its household (no more than fifty buildings in number); the residence of namasole, or queen mother (no more than twenty in number); the official residences of the three local ministers and all county chiefs (no more than ten buildings); but in the dispute over the liability of a building to pay the shack tax, the matter must be referred to the collector for the province of Uganda, the decision of which must be final. However, this regime has no influence on the issue of communal tariffs, lighting prices, water prices, market levies, etc., which can be treated separately as matters concerning municipalities or municipalities; Nor will it exempt indigenous people from the obligations of military service or catch-up of the main roads that cross the countries on which they reside. Each building used as a place of residence is subject to a tax on the shacks. A collection of no more than four cabins, however, which in the separate and unique enrlage and are only inhabited by a man and his wife, or wives, as a shack. 20. If, in the first two years following the signing of this agreement, the Kingdom of Uganda does not pay the Ugandan administration, the taxation of indigenous peoples is half the amount owed to 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.
On the other hand, if the revenue from the shack and arms tax exceeds a total value of $45,000 per year for two years, Kabaka and district chiefs have the right to call on Her Majesty`s government to increase subsidies to Kabaka and grants for ministers and local leaders. that this increase is in the same proportional ratio as the increase in income from the taxation of indigenous peoples. The Kingdom of Uganda is subject to the same customs rules, Porter Regulations, etc., which can be introduced with Her Majesty`s agreement for the Ugandan protectorate in general, which can be described as external taxation in one sense, but no other internal taxation, with the exception of the shelter tax, is imposed on the indigenous peoples of Uganda province without kabaka`s agreement. which is guided in this case by the majority of votes on its original council.
