Buweekula is approximately 172 kilometers, by road, west of Kampala. It is headed by Luweekula and consists of 6 sub counties. Buwekula is literally known as a “Place of disaster” and earned its name in the 16th century when its summit served as the capital of a notorious King whose reign was characterized by several massacres. Both oral and traditional archaeological evidence suggest that the sacred hilltop plateau formerly called “Kisozi” supported a substantial and important settlement centuries before the 16th Century.

Over the years Buweekula has come to be known as the home to the Nakayima shrine and tourism activity revolves around this site. Its popularization has also given prominence to other sites such as Nakayima Tombs, Lake Katebe and several other tourism sites in the county. Agriculture is the prime activity in Kabula; 70% of the population depends on subsistence farming as the main source of livelihood. The major cash crops are: coffee, cotton, tea, tobacco, maize, beans, groundnuts, Irish potatoes, pineapples, tomatoes and passion fruits. Major cash crops are cassava, bananas, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, millet and yams. Livestock is the second most important agricultural activity in the county.
