Provinces of Rwanda

A strict hierarchy has governed Rwanda since the pre-colonial times. Before the Colonisation, the King (Mwami) exercised the 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.

  4. Eastern Province
