Uganda was one of the few colonial territories that achieved independence without a dominant political party with a clear majority in parliament.
In the pre-Independence elections, the UPC ran no candidates in Buganda and won 37 of the 61 directly elected seats (outside Buganda). The "special status" granted to Buganda meant that the 21 Buganda seats were elected by proportional representation reflecting the elections to the Buganda parliament – the Lukikko.
From the moment the British created the Uganda protectorate, the issue of how to manage the largest monarchy within the framework of a unitary state had always been a problem.
Colonial governors had failed to come up with a formula that worked.
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.
This drew in substantial support from outside Buganda.
This was further complicated by Buganda’s nonchalant attitude to issue.
Buganda never sought independence, but rather appeared to be comfortable with a loose arrangement that guaranteed them privileges above the other subjects in the protectorate – or a special status when the British left.
Obote became Prime minister, and as promised the Kabaka became ceremonial president.KY won a resounding victory over DP, winning all 21 seats.KY held the balance of power, and the bitterness with the DP in Buganda walked the Kabaka to seek an alliance with UPC, further enhanced by Obote’s promise to keep Buganda’s "special status" and grant the Kabaka the ceremonial presidential role.The split resulted in the creation of two dominant Buganda based parties – the Kabaka Yekka (Kabaka Only) KY, and the Democratic Party (DP) that had roots in the Catholic Church.The bitterness between these two parties was extremely intense especially as the first elections for the post-Colonial parliament approached.
