Ankole by Kenyans247(1): Thu 14, May, 2020 07:33am
Ankole (Runyankore: Nkore), was a traditional Bantu kingdom in Uganda. The kingdom is located in south-western Uganda, east of Lake Edward. It was ruled by a monarch known as the Mugabe or Omugabe. The kingdom was formally abolished in 1967 by the government of President Milton Obote, and since then, the kingdom has not been restored officially.[2] The people of Ankole are called Banyankole (singular: Munyankole) in Runyankole language, a Bantu language.

On 25 October 1901, the Kingdom of Nkore was incorporated into the British Protectorate of Uganda by the signing of the Ankole agreement.[3]

Because of the reorganisation of the country by Idi Amin, Ankole no longer exists as an administrative unit. It is divided into ten districts, namely: Bushenyi District, Buhweju District, Mitooma District, Rubirizi District, Sheema District, Ntungamo District, Mbarara District, Kiruhura District, Ibanda District, and Isingiro District.

Nkore Kingdom was divided into ten counties. These counties are now divided into various political constituencies. But the original ten counties of Nkore include:

Kashari
Isingiro
Rwampara
Nyabushozi
Ibanda
Sheema
Kajjara
Bunyaruguru
Igara
Buhweju

The Nkore calendar was divided into 12 months. They were named according to weather conditions and activities done in that period. They include

Biruuru
Kaata (Katambuga)
Nyaikoma
Kyabahezi
Kahingo
Nyirirwe
Kicuransi
Katumba
Musenene
Muzimbezi
