They were asked remove discrimination against non-Africans

APRIL 19, 1962 - The Buganda Government was asked to amend the Buganda Land Law to remove discrimination against non-Africans. This followed Prime Minister Bendicto Kiwanuka's statement that his cabinet had agreed to repeal the Land Transfer Ordinance.

He, however, said the ordinance would remain in operation until legislation to repeal it had been passed by the National Assembly after independence on October 9, 1962.

It was feared that such discriminatory provisions would be against the provision for fundamental human rights in the new Uganda Constitution.
