Beginning in 1894, the area was ruled as a protectorate by the UK, who established administrative law across the territory.Uganda gained independence from the UK on 9 October 1962.Colonial governors had failed to come up with a formula that worked.This was further complicated by Buganda's nonchalant attitude to its relationship with the central government.
The UPC at its heart was dominated by politicians who wanted to rectify what they saw as the regional inequality that favoured Buganda's special status.
Buganda never sought independence, but rather appeared to be comfortable with a loose arrangement that guaranteed them privileges above the other subjects within the protectorate or a special status when the British left.
