About Kasese Municipality

Kasese Town Council became a municipality in July, 2010. Located 420Km from Kampala, Kasese municipality covers a total area of 174 square km. It boarders Queen Elizabeth National park (South East), Mt. Rwenzori National Park (South West) and acomodates part of the Rwenzori ranges in the same direction. We also house the cultural head quaters of the Rwenzururu Kingdom.

We exist to "deliver effective and efficient services to the urban community in line with natural and local priorities for sustainable social-economic urban development" through urban waste management, provision of urban road infrastructure, health and education services to the urban community. We strive to be leaders in the thematic areas of Tourism and Sustainable energy and systems. In doing all this, our vision is to have a "well planned, clean, green and poverty free municipality by 2025."
