Provinces of Rwanda

A strict hierarchy has governed Rwanda since pre-colonial times. Before Colonisation, the king (Mwami) exercised control through a system of provinces, districts, hills and neighbourhoods.

The current constitution divides Rwanda into provinces (intara), districts (uturere), cities, municipalities, cities, sectors (imirenge), cells (utugari) and villages (imidugudu); the Rwandan Parliament establishes the largest divisions and their borders.

The city of Kigali is a provincial authority.

The four Rwandan provinces are:

  1. Southern Province
  2. Western Province
  3. Northern Province
  4. Eastern Province
