Unlike the treaties of 1893 and 1894, the Ugandan Convention of 1900 included clear borders of the Kingdom of Uganda, a land ownership system and a tax policy.  Before the agreement was signed, the whole country in Buganda belonged to Kabaka, hence the title Sabataka. Officials of the Kingdom. Regent Stanislas Mugwanya (middle) with other Buganda chiefs in the 1890s, during the reign of Kabaka Daudi Chwa II. The regents and chiefs were beneficiaries of the distribution of land under the De Buganda Agreement of 1900, which rewarded them for their collaboration with the British. FILE PHOTO 5. The laws enacted by Her Majesty`s Government for the General Management of the Ugandan Protectorate also apply to the Kingdom of Uganda, unless they conflict with the provisions of this agreement, in which case the provisions of that agreement constitute a particular exception with respect to the Kingdom of Uganda. Taxes on shacks and weapons have been introduced. Each cottage on a farm was taxed at four rupees a year, while each person who owned a gun paid three rupees a year, in accordance with Article 12 of the agreement. For the first time, the Kabaka and its leaders are expected to earn an annual salary from Her Majesty`s government.
Article 6 dealt with Kabaka`s payments to the chief of Sazza. This was a new development in the Ganda administration. The three regents were entitled to $400 a year until the young king woke up. Kabaka is expected to receive $400 a year, Sazza bosses $200, three state officials — prime minister, chief judge and treasurer — $300 each, while Namasole (Chwa`s mother) is expected to receive $50. It was an annual tax on the shack and the arms tax. The signing, in 1900, took place after years of negotiations under the leadership of Bishop Alfred Tucker. It is not surprising that the Anglican Church, under the missionary society of the Church, took the lion`s share in the new administration after the signing of the Agreement. The agreement had three sections: power-sharing, the public finance system and the country. But there were difficulties because Kabaka Chwa was only a minor who was not involved in the negotiations.
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.
