History

In the beginning, the Buganda Parliament convened inside one of the Kabaka's palaces and conducted business under the shade of one or more trees Later, grass-thatched buildings served as the parliament buildings Around the beginning of the 20th century, Prime Minister of Buganda, Apollo Kaggwa, contracted an Indian, Alidina Visram, to build a parliament building using bricks As the kingdom's government grew in size, the need for a large-enough meeting hall forced the construction of the Bulange outside the King's Palace for the first time

While in exile in Scotland in 1953, Ssekabaka Muteesa II saw and admired the construction drawings of a building He brought those drawings with him on his return from exile in 1955 He directed that the new Bulange be constructed according to those drawings Construction began in 1955 and was completed in 1958 at a cost of £5 million, fully funded by the Government of Buganda
