As of July 2020, Uganda is divided into 135 districts and the capital city of Kampala, which are grouped into four administrative regions.
Since 2005, the Ugandan government has been in the process of dividing districts into smaller units. This decentralization is intended to prevent resources from being distributed primarily to chief towns and leaving the remainder of each district neglected.
Each district is further divided into counties and municipalities,and each county is further divided into sub-counties. The head elected official in a district is the chairperson of the Local Council five (usually written with a Roman numeral V).
