  • Description

    Carrying rifles and fixed bayonets, about seven hundred men of the Uganda Police marched through the streets of Kampala Dec 10 in a parade held to mark the second year in office of Kampala's first African Mayor. Councillor S.W.Kalubya, who took the salute.

    A warning of troubles ahead came when Mr G.B. Cartland, Chief Secretary of Uganda, recently said that "everyone could see that the British Government and its representatives would be relinquishing their rule and control in the next two or three years. But until they actually departed, the British Government would be responsible for the protection of the country. We have the resources to maintain the situation, and we will not allow men to interfere and break up what could be a very brilliant future for the country."
    It was announced Dec 9 that Britain had rejected the Buganda Lukiko's (Parliament) demand for secession. In a statement issued from London, Colonial Secretary Macleod informed the Kabaka of Buganda that Britain would not allow him to break away from British protection and declare Buganda a separate autonomous State on Jan 1. This was in reply to a memorandum sent to the Queen by the Buganda Lukiko in October.
