Mailo tenure is the most legislated form of tenure in Uganda, having its origins in the 1900 Buganda Agreement. Reforms over the years have seen the evolution of this tenure that is essentially freehold in nature, albeit with its local characteristics arising out of an unresolved tenant question. This status quo was reinstated in the 1995 Constitution, the Land Act and its subsequent amendments. Whereas it is expected that reforms introduced by the Constitution and Land Act would suffice in stabilizing Mailo tenure, this has not happened in practice. This is not solely because the reforms introduced do not meet the needs of the land lords and tenants, but also because the interpretations and applicability of such provisions has not been provided to the various users and consumers of land administration services to enable the securing of the rights of both tenants and landlords. 'This publication seeks to help in the interpretation and application of the law to enable peaceful coexistence of tenants and landlords on mailo land"
