Bunyoro Kingdom gets a University: Bunyoro sub-region has finally got a University of her own.

Bunyoro Kitara Royal University (BUKIRU) is set to open on 15th September 2014.

This is a step ahead in the right direction towards social-economic transformation of the kingdom.

The lack of a public university in the region prompted the kingdom to start its own with the hope that government will complement it.

Bunyoro Kitara Royal University is the first ever Community University located in Hoima town “the heart of the Oil City” in a comfortable cool academic environment adjacent to King’s Palace-Karuzika and held in trust by Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom with vast support from the five district local governments of Hoima, Masindi Kibaale Bulisa and Kiryandongo.
