The kingdom was formally abolished in 1967 by the government of President Milton Obote and the kingdom has not been officially restored since then. [2] The people of Ankole are Banyankole (singular: Munyankole) in the language of Runyankole, a bantu language. The Nkore calendar was divided into 12 months. They were named based on weather conditions and activities during this period.

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.
