Ankole (Runyankore: Nkore) was a traditional kingdom of Bantu in Uganda. The kingdom is located in southwestern Uganda, east of Lake Edward. It was ruled by a monarch known as Mugabe or Omugabe. The kingdom was formally abolished in 1967 by the government of President Milton Obote and the kingdom has not been officially restored since then.  The people of Ankole are Banyankole (singular: Munyankole) in the language of Runyankole, a bantu language. On October 10, 1901, the Kingdom of Nkore was incorporated into the British protectorate of Uganda by the signing of the Ankole Agreement.  Due to the restructuring of the country by Idi Amin, Ankole no longer exists as an administrative entity. It is divided into ten districts: Bushenyi District, Buhweju District, Mitooma District, Rubisizi District, Sheema District, Ntungamo District, Mbarara District, Kiruhura District, Ibanda District and Isingiro District. The Nkore calendar was divided into 12 months. They were named based on weather conditions and activities during this period.
