HC Deb 30 November 1955 vol 546 c213W
94. Mr. Alport

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies to make a statement with regard to the decision of the Buganda Government to exile a number of leading Baganda personalities, and to remove or transfer a number of Saza chiefs.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I have not heard of any suggestion that leading personalities in Buganda should be exiled nor do I know of any decision by the Buganda Government to remove or transfer Saza Chiefs. The Saza Chief of Bulemezi, who is over 60, has resigned.

There have been reports of other Chiefs being under political pressure to resign. I sincerely hope that these reports were not correct or that, if they were, the responsible people in Buganda will realise in time what harm any such action would do to Buganda's reputation.
