Katakwi District LOcal Government:District Headquater                                     


Katakwi District was created and became a District in 1997 through the Act of Parliament.  The District was curved out of Soroti District in 1997 and in July 2005, Amuria District was curved out of Katakwi District. The Council was therefore empowered by the Local Government Act 1997 to consolidate and streamline the previous administrative structure to give effect to decentralization and devolve functions, power and services to lower councils.  Section 7, sub-section 2 of the Local Government Act 1997, specifically gave Local Government to Katakwi District.  This therefore implied that Katakwi District Local Government was mandated to implement and consolidate the decentralization processes through prioritization of development projects, plan resources identification and allocation.  This plan therefore provides the necessary policy guidelines and general direction for the Local Government for the development of Katakwi District for the next five years through the period 2015/16 – 2019/20
