Districts of Uganda

Uganda 's 112 districts (municipality) divided that - each named after its main town - except Kaba Roles with the district capital of Fort Portal. These are divided into the four regions of the Eastern, Western, Northern and Central Districts that are no special administrative importance.

Since the mid- 1990s, the top level of the administrative units, consisting of ten provinces and was divided into only 38 districts, was replaced by an increasingly smaller-scale classification. The former provinces were Nile, Northern, Karamoja, Western, Eastern, North Buganda, Busoga, Central, Southern and South Buganda.

On 1 July 2000, the eight districts Yumbe, Sironko, Pader, Wakiso, Kayunga, Mayuge, Kyenjojo and Kamwenge were newly formed. Kanungu, Kaberamaido and Nakapiripirit established on 1 July 2001.

By 2002, the division process led to 56 districts. 2005/2006 then it was decided to create an additional 24 districts that were formed in two steps. On July 1, 2005 13 new districts were formed on 1 July 2006 was followed by a further eleven, so that Uganda was the end of 2006 from 80 districts. Since July 2010, Uganda consists of 111 districts and Kampala, the capital.
