Abstract:The political crisis in 1964 began in January with a stormy budget session and ended in November with the collapse of the government. The several disasters of that year had in common the effect of creating general discontent throughout Buganda; there was a growing conviction that the leaders were unable to solve Buganda's problems and, at the same time, a growing suspicion that these problems were rooted in Buganda's increasingly vulnerable position within Uganda. The article examines aspects of the crisis through a study of two major political events: the no-confidence motion moved in the Lukiko parliament in March (in demanding the resignation of the head of the government Kintu the motion urged the formation of a progressive, dynamic and better ministry) and the fall of the Kintu government in November and the election of a new Katikiro (Prime Minister).
