A brief look at the Political History as to how Uganda became a Nation / Country under the Control of Britain .
1.5 : This Communication hereby is to inform you that , Uganda became a British Colonial Possession ( British Protectorate ) on 1 April 1894 . After Different Kingdoms , Nations , and / or Tribes were forced to Sign at different times by their Respective Leaders ( Kings , Crown Princes , Chiefs , or Regents ) to transfer their Sovereignty to the British Queen , to be under the British Sovereignty , regardless of the circumstances under which they signed ( by free will or were forced to sign ) . It is still a Treaty Law , which is binding to the Parties .
a ) Uganda Kingdom signed these Treaties or Agreements with Britain on 26 December 1890 , on 30 March 1892 , on 17 June 1892 , on 29 May 1893 , and Officially Uganda Kingdom was Occupied on 1 April 1893 and Proclaimed a Protectorate on 1 April 1894 , on 10 March 1900 and finally on 18 October 1955 , following Namirembe Constitution Conference 1955 .
b ) Nkore Kingdom ( known today as Ankole ) signed Agreements or Treaties with the British Authorities as follows : on 1 July 1891 , on 25 October 1894 , on 25 October 1901 , and 30 August 1960 , following the Wild Constitutional Committee of 1959 .
c ) Toro Kingdom signed Agreements with Britain on 18 August 1891 and 6 June 1901 , and in 1903 . The King of Toro is known as the Omukama
d ) Usoga Kingdom signed the Agreements on 25 March 1890 and Administrative Arrangements in 1895 . Therefore , all of them became One Nation under the Colonial Title British Protectorate ( Colony ) on 3 July 1896 . This was Confirmed by the British Order in Council of 1908 .
e ) Koki Kingdom was defeated by Britain and Uganda Kingdom combined forces . Then Koki Kingdom was annexed to the Uganda Kingdom in 1897 . Thus Koki Kingdom became a Province of Uganda and lost its National Identity as the Kingdom of Koki until today .
f ) Mpororo Kingdom was broken into two : one Part given to Ankole Kingdom and the other Part remained as Kigezi District , together with other Non Kiga Tribes such as the Bafumbira People . The Majority of the People of Kigezi are the Bakiga People .
g ) The Acholi , after the War of Lamogi , became Part of Uganda by the Agreement of 1912 , since the Boundary between Lado and North West of Uganda was established in 1907 , the Anglo / Russian Agreement of 31 August 1907 and Lado and North Uganda was established in 1914 , and the Lake Rudolf Province was transfered from Uganda Protectorate to Kenya Colony , and Mombasa Coast Protectorate in 1926.
h ) Unyoro Kingdom resisted British Occupation until 1923 ( where King Kabarega died in 1923 ) . Unyoro Kingdom became a Part of the State of Uganda ( British Uganda Protectorate ) by the Unyoro British Agreement on 23 October 1933 , which was renewed by the Unyoro Agreement of 3 September 1955 . During the Namirembe Conference of 1955 , under the Chairman of Professor Sir Keith Hancock and then the Wild Constitutional Committee of 1959 .
i ) The Other Parts of the British Uganda Protectorate since 1 April 1894 ( approved by the British Parliament on 27 August 1894 ) such as Teso , Lango , Kumam , and so forth became part of the State of Uganda in 1937 .
j ) Karamoja , however , remained an Occupied Territory of Britain under Special Arrangement until 1962 . The People ( from Lado ) do not know if the ( Karamoja People ) have ever had an Agreement with Britain to be a Part of the British Uganda Protectorate ( 1908 ) .
k ) The State ( Kingdom / " KAARI " ) of Lado has been a Seperate Political Entity since 1839 . It was occupied by the Ottoman Empire ( Turkey ) through Egypt on 26 May 1871 by the Turco / Egyptian Firman ( Decree ) of 1 April 1869 and the Turco / Egyptian Firman of 13 February 1841 .
In conclusion and By the British Order in Council of 1908 , all the / these different Kingdoms who made seperate Agreements with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland , became one Political Entity under the name Uganda . The Name Uganda is the Kingdom of Uganda , meaning the Land of the Ganda People ( BAGANDA ) . Whereas and while Unyoro Kingdom remained an Occupied Territory after its Military Defeat by Britain in 1896 . The Uganda Kingdom became known as the Buganda Kingdom , a Political Entity under the British Protectorate inclulding Ugisu , which later came to be known as Bugisu , following the Uganda Kingdom Agreement with Britain of 10 March 1900 ( signed by Uganda Regents ) . By Article 6 of Uganda Agreement 1900 , Britain over rules .
Uganda as a Political Entity , 1908
2.1 : All the points ( Agreements ) mentioned above , is to emphasize the fact that , the Modern Uganda as Political Entity became into being in 1908 , by the British Order in Council 1908 ( Uganda ) . An Order in Council is a Legal Document , or a Decree , made under the Signature of the King or Queen , by the Privy Council with the Queen or King as the Chairman . This is the General Principle which applies to the Kingdoms . And the Judicial Committeee is the Highest Court of Appeal ( in the British Empire ) now in the British Commonwealth .
2.2 : It is therefore , very important to note and to know that , the State of Lado never signed or made an Agreement with Britain to become a Part of the British Uganda Protectorate . In fact , that was the reason why His Majesty ( H.M ) Agofe of Lado refused that , Lado be a Part of a British East African Federation , which was a Federation of British Colonial Territories in East Africa , it would mean that Lado was consenting to be a British Colony under the British Sovereignty . So Lado rejected the East African Federation in 1953 .
2.3 : As Lado is not and has not and does not want to lose her Sovereignty / Sovereign Status ( NDUVUNDUVU in Lado Language ) to Britain or any other Foreign Country , the Decolonisation of Lado shall not be done under the British or the British Commonwealth Association or a British Commonwealth Countries .
2.4 : Since 1947 , Britain blocked any Process for the Decolonisation of Lado and when in May 1960 , Britain once again blocked the independence of Lado , the British Government had planned to find Ways and Means to block the State of Lado , using her Position as a Permanent Member of the UN Security Council and as the Chief - Head of the British Commonwealth Member Countries , such as Uganda , Kenya and the whole British Commonwealth ( Refer to Document of 1926 and West Minister Statute 1931 ) .
However , there is no need to drag the People of Uganda in or through the Long Political History of Lado and Legal History of Lado , knowing that , Lado defended the State of Lado since 1839 . But a short Essential Information about Lado is thought to be necessary for the Uganda People . The State of Lado is Situated on the Nile Congo Water Shade Region in Equatoria Central Africa . The State of Lado is the KAARI ( STATE ) of Lado . A State can be a Kingdom
or a Republic . While the Form of Government can be a Unitary , or a Confederation , or a Federation depending on the Constitutional Background of the Peoples and Tribes that make the State . Both Writen and Unwriten .
THE STRUGGLE OF LADO
OCCUPIED TERRITORY OF LADO
3.1 : The State / or KAARI of Lado ( Nile Congo Watershade Region ) is still and not yet an Independent State / Country in Africa . Lado is an Occupied Territory by Britain and Belgium since 1947 . This means that Britain and Belgium are the Administrating Countries of the State of Lado . And Lado is a Non Self Governing Territory , according to Article 73 of the UN Charter of 26 June 1945 . Therefore Lado has the Right to Territorial Self determination and to be Decolonised and be Independent and Sovereign Nation State ( Country ) . That is why Lado Demands its Independence .
3.2 : The British Policy on Lado is that , Lado should be Killed as a Nation State in World Politics ( International Law , International Politics , International Diplomacy , and International Relations ) . The People of Lado do not know why Britain ( Including Her Majest's Government ) does not want Lado to Exist as an Independent , Sovereign State ( Country ) on this Earth and particularly in the Mother Continent Africa . The People of Lado ( Ladoans ) are not going to do a guess work here . That is for the British Politicians and Statesmen to give you an answer here . But the People of Lado are sick to death and tired of it , of the British behaviour towards Lado . Lado hopes the British People try to understand that .
3.3 : However , the People of Lado , under their Successive Leaders ( Agofe , and the Chiefs and Politicians ) , have resisted and rejected to be Colonised by any Foreign Powers , including Britain since 1839 till todate . Simply stated , no Country , or any European Country has effectively ( Legally ) colonised the State of Lado . And more so , the State of Lado has not been colonised . And the State of Lado does not want to be colonised . It is a Fact that the State of Lado has been Occupied by different Colonial Powers from time to time since 1871 . But the People of Lado defended the Independence and the Sovereignty of Lado till todate ( 3000 a.d. ) . So you may refer to the Terms such as Occupied or Non Self Governing Territories or Colonial , or Protectorate , each has a different meaning in Politics . It is important to note that we should know each of these Terms and as well understand each of its implications to a State or a Nation ( Country ) and its People .
3.4 : As Legally stated , no European Country , Colonial Power colonised Lado , then the Countries surrounding Lado ( Sudan : North or South Sudan States , Uganda , Congo / former Zaire , Ethiopia , Central African Republic / CAR , and Kenya ) did not inherit and do not inherit the Territory of the State of Lado to be under their Administrations . The Territory of the State of Lado is a Seperate Political Entity since 1815 through to 1885 , till todate ( 3000 A.D ) . Lado did not become a Colonial Possession of the European Colonial Powers / Masters in Africa , as Britain for Uganda , Kenya , and Sudan : both the seperated North and South Sudan States now , as Belgian for Congo / Zaire , and as France for the Central African Republc / CAR . There is a big difference
between Dominions , Colonies , Protectorates , and Occupied Territories . And Lado is an Occupied Territory . That is Correct , or that is right according to Article 73 of the UN Charter of 26 June 1945 . That is Why Lado Demands the Independence / or Freedom / ( DRIWALA in Lado language meaning Freedom ) of Lado .
3.5 : Till todate ( 3000 a. d) Lado is a Seperate Political Entity ( State ) , just like other Countries surrounding Lado ( Sudan : North Sudan / South Sudan States , Congo / former Zaire , Uganda , Central African Republic / CAR , Kenya and Ethiopia ) . The only difference is that , the State of Lado is not yet an Independent Sovereign State . It is still an occupied Territory by Belgium and Britain since 1947 . In short , the Occupied Territory of Lado is a Non Self Governing Territory . The People of Lado demand the Independence of Lado and the Sovereignthy of Lado . And the People of Lado are working hard for the Independence of Lado in accordance to the Articles 1 , 51 , and 73 of the UN Charter of 26 June 1945 and Berlin Treaty of 26 February 1885 including the UN General Assembly Resolution 1514 ( XV ) of 14 December 1960 .
3.6 : The Concern of the People of Lado is to inform the People of Uganda and the Countries in Africa that , the Lado People Demand for the Independence and the Declaration for the Independence and Sovereignty of Lado is not against Uganda , or against any of the Countries of Africa or even against any of the Countries of the World . The People of Lado are struggling for the Territorial Independence of Lado and the Sovereignty of Lado as a Sovereign Nation State
( Political Entity ) . Even the EUROPEAN COUNTRIES , who had come to Colonise the African Countries in 1840 1940 , and the African Peoples know very well that Lado has to be Independent Sovereign State according to the Berlin Treaty of 26 February 1885 and the UN Charter of 26 June 1945 , plus the OAU ( Organisation of African Unit ) Charter of 25 May 1963 , including the Relevant Resolutions of United Nations and International Law .
3.7 : Almost , all the African countries are now Independent Nations since 1940 , or are being prepared to be Independent Nations by the UN AND OAU / AU , and Others . Why not the State Kingdom of Lado ? Britain does not allow the State of Lado to be put on the UN list of Non Self Governing Territories . What does Britain have against the State of Lado ( People , Land / Territory of Lado , Government , the Sovereign and Natural Resources ) ? The State of Lado is not even a Part of the British East Africa , or Colonial Territory . So it must be just a BRITISH POLITICAL HATRED AND POLITICAL DISCRIMINATION TO DOMINATE LADO , TO CONTROL LADO AND TO EXPLOIT THE PEOPLE OF LADO AND THE LAND NATURAL RESORCES OF LADO .
And be that , the Lado People Reject it in every possible way on this Earth . Lado people SHALL NOT Want to be Slaves of other Nations on this Earth . Lado shall continue to fight / struggle for her Territory Independence of Lado and Sovereignty of Lado ( Africa ) . So that , Lado People can also creat Wealth and Happiness for themselves on this Planet Earth on which they also live as Free people like the British people .
3.8 : The Lado Political Authorities ( The Agofe of Lado and the Government of Lado ) have already sent to the Concerned Countries and Institutions , the Lado Demand and Ultimatum for the Nation Independence and Sovereignty of Lado as a Sovereign State in the Year 3000 and will do so in years to come when the need be . This is in accordance to the UN General Assembly Resolution 43 / 47 of 22 November 1988 .
Indeed it has nothing to do with Lado ( Sudanic People , Nilotic People , and Hamitic People ) consisting of 29 Tribes wanting to fight ( Lado ) Neighbours ; especially in the pretext Uganda or anybody else . However if anybody / or anyone wants to Colonise the State of Lado , for sure , the People of Lado will fight for their Rights to / for Territory Independence of Lado and Sovereignty of Lado in the Nile Congo Watershade Region of Equatorial Central Africa and the Nile Valley Basin and the Great Western Rift Valley .
3.9 : It is with Regret and Great Concern that , the Political Authorities of Lado , and the People of Lado , have noted that , the Government of Uganda especially is very Agressive and Militarily Provocative against the State of Lado ( People / Population , Land / Territory , Government / Organ , the Sovereign , and Natural Resources ) . The People of Lado , under their Political Leadership ( AGOFE ) want Good Future Relations with all the Lado Neighbours ( Sudan : North and South Sudan States , Congo , Uganda , Kenya , Ethiopia , and Central African Republic / CAR ) . Lado only wants the Independence and Sovereignty of Lado in the ( Nile Congo Watershade Region ) in Equatoria Central Africa . This is the Lado Objective and Demand to Britain and Belgium , who are the Administering Countries of the State of Lado Kingdom till todate .
3.10 : Lado wants Security , Peace , and Stability in her Country . And the Political Authorities of Lado Believe that , even Uganda and the Other African Countries want Peace and Security in their Countries too . Truely , and the Politicians of every Country should work for Peace , Security , and Stability . For without Peace , and Political Stability , there is No Economic and Social Development and / or Progress . Without Peace there is no Security . ( Look what is happening to all the surrounding Countries to Lado today / and how will they be , in tommorrow 's time comings ? ) . The people of Lado need Peace and Security as a Nation State .
