Read More about - Uganda's History as a Uganda Tour Product
Uganda is positioned along the Equator engulfed by the Great Lakes of Africa and with no access to the sea. The earliest foreigners to arrive in Uganda were Arabs in 1840s and were then followed by the European explorers of British origin on the year 1962 for Speke and Stanley in 1875.
The foreigners would approach the Buganda Kingdom first due to its proximity to Lake Victoria which was their main point of entry and the reigning King by then was King Muteesa I.
Buganda Kingdom was one of the four Kingdoms in the region which were firmly established in the mid-19th Century including the Ankole Kingdom, Bunyoro Kingdom and Tooro Kingdom along with with other chiefdoms in the east and the north of Uganda. The form of governance was monarchical. Uganda at first was of little interest to the colonialists as seen by the British and Germans after agreeing the spheres of influence in the year 1886 and the nation Kenya belonging to Britain, the area that was beyond the north shore of Lake Victoria was underestimated and a company was contracted to take care of it. The Imperial British East African Company (IBEACo.) thrived between the year 1888 to the year 1895 taking care of the region from the Buganda’s Kingdom’s east coast to the Lake Victoria’s north west shores. Since the region was actually beyond Lake Victoria as British thought and the Germans thought of taking an advantage of the treaty by noting that Buganda which was the most powerful Kingdom in the region by then was not detailed in the territorial treaty with Britain.
Karl Peters approached the King of Buganda in the year 1890 to enter into an agreement that would put Buganda under German protectorate. Lord Salisbury the then British Prime Minister persuades Berlin to opt for Heligoland Island which is in the south west of North Sea which belonged to the British since the year 1814. Germany accepted the offer and let go of the East African territories of Uganda, Zanzibar and the Equatoria (Sudan’s Southern Province), Unfortunately, Heligo land would later become useless to German as it had been sought as a perfect naval base but ended disappointing in the two world wars. The IBEACo was confronted with a myriad of challenges ranging from absence of a railway network connecting Uganda with the coast and the religious conflict in Buganda. There was war break out between the French Catholics and the British Protestant Missionaries and in Jan 1892 the fight broke out among the four hills of Kampala where on top of one hill there was Kabaka’s palace, on the second one was the French Catholic Cathedral build with wooden poles and reeds, on the third one was the Protestants who were still building their church while on the fourth one was the Fredrick Lugard – the head of IBEACo who had advantage of his Maxim Machine gun.
Though Lugard won the situation, the loss of life and property indicated that IBEACo had proved failure to manage the territory. As a result, Britain declared a Buganda a British Protectorate in the year 1894 after which it extended its control to the other Kingdoms of Ankole, Tooro and Bunyoro forming together the Ugandan Protectorate by 1896. Though Kenya had remained Calm nothing of value had been realized and also the British Government revoked the contract of IBEACo with 250,000 pounds in compensation and the government takes the control of all her East African territories. In 1899, the British government sent Sir Harry Johnston a seasoned administrator to study and recommend the best form of administration that would keep the Ugandan protectorate in a calm and productive situation. Johnston is credited for his 1900 Buganda agreement as he was convinced that the power held by the local African Kings can be a perfect tool through which foreign administration can flow. In the 1900 Buganda Agreement, the status of the Kabaka of Buganda is put in recognition of Britain along with his council of chiefs. The freehold land rights were recognized. Johnston went ahead and signed similar agreements with the Kings of Ankole in 1901 and Tooro in 1900 after which he returns to Britain. Unlike in Kenya where the whites were encouraged to occupy the Kenyan Highlands, Uganda had been declared uninhabitable by Europeans.
Though disagreements followed and pressure to establish European farms and plantations, the British Commissioner emphasized that Uganda would be an entirely African state and the locals were encouraged to grow cash crops and the cotton growing flourished. However, this monarchical arrangement was to prove ineffective in the years that followed when Uganda was preparing for her independence. The strength of Buganda proved an imbalance in the protectorate. In 1960s, the leading politician of Uganda Dr. Milton Obote who was the founder of the Uganda People’s Congress whose support was greatly from the north was now in a big competition with southern region of Buganda. In March 1962, Uganda is granted self-governance internally and Milton Obote became the Prime Minister participated in the making of the constitution that would take effect when the full independence was granted in October 1962.
As a result of pressure from Buganda, Obote bows to the federal constitution that guaranteed semi autonomy to the four established Kingdoms of Uganda and under the same pressure the Obote approved Kabaka Mutesa II as the President and the Head of State though this did not last long. In the year 1966, Obote failed to come to terms with Mutesa and he sent a force led Idi Amin the newly appointed Army Commander attacking the palace forcing King Mutesa II into exile. Immediately, the new constitution was established and the hereditary monarchs and chiefdoms were all abolished and introduced the executive president position assuming it himself and adding it on his Prime Ministerial position.
Some of the Ugandan presidents
Obote used the army and the police to curb down opposition which created national discontent which Amin took advantage of in 1971 taking over his government through a military coup leaving Obote to stay in exile in the neighboring Tanzania. Obote maintained a small-faction of the army in exile with Tito Okello as the commanding officer. Amin undertook one of the remarkable decisions when he expelled the Asians in the year 1972 giving them a period of 90 days to vacate Uganda. The economy was severely hurt and the country’s economic, social and political atmosphere deteriorated. He resorted to brutal killings and 100,000 – 500,000 Ugandans are believed to have lost their lives during his regime. Amin undertook another uncalculated move when he invaded Tanzania in the year 1978 prompting Tanzania to deploy troops backing the Obote’s army and the FRONASA fighters leading to his ousting in 1979 flying to Saudi Arabia The transition was first led by Prof Yusuf Lule and then Godfrey Binaisa before Lutwa undertook a military coup in May 1980 bringing back Milton Obote to power. A general election was then conducted in 6 months’ time which he won and affirmed the president. Cases of vote rigging were reported prompting the some of the participants Like UPM’s Museveni to go to the bush. The subsequent years that followed Obote applies violence to exert his rule on people and tribal massacres were common everyday and conducted by the army. In the year 1985, the Tito Okello carried out a military coup that sent Obote back to exile in Zambia. But the guerilla faction of Yoweri Museveni had gained strength and was well organized and in 1986, they took over power from the Lutwa government. Yoweri Museveni with his National Resistance Army took control of Kampala in January 1986 declaring a government of national Unity that was to become a pivot of peace and stability in the country up to present. There was a noticeable improvement in national development including the economy and the first constitution was amalgamated in 1995. Museveni ruled under single part system until 2005 when multiparty politics were allowed through a national referendum. Uganda holds a national election after every five (5) years and features an independent electoral commission, the Army – Uganda Peoples Defense Forces (UPDF), the police – Uganda Police Force (UPF), a functioning parliament and Constitution. There are monuments including the Independence Monument, Museums including the Uganda National Museum and memorials like the mass graves in Luwero that have been put overtime to act living testimonies of this remarkable national history.
