Political leaders in Hoima district continue to bicker over the proposed boundaries of the newly-created Kikuube district. Kikuube which was approved by parliament in 2015 is supposed to take the boundaries of Buhaguzi County as per the 2010 resolution of the Hoima district council.
Bunyoro-Kitara Kingdom has asked the central government to halt the operationalization of Kikuube district which is supposed to be curved out of Hoima district. Kikuube is one of the 25 new districts approved by parliament in 2015 and is set to be operational effective July 1, 2018. The new district supposed to take the boundaries of Buhaguzi County has of late received opposition from a section of politicians in Hoima district.
