The Luweero Triangle, sometimes spelled Luwero Triangle, is an area of Uganda to the north of the capital Kampala, where Yoweri Museveni started the guerrilla war in 1981, that propelled him and his National Resistance Movement into power in 1986.

The term is commonly used to refer to an area notorious for the persecution of civilians during the Luweero War, between the rebel National Resistance Army and the government of Milton Obote. Many citizens were either recruited or killed by either forces during the 5-year-long Ugandan Bush War as Museveni's guerrilla forces started its southeast-ward advancement from Kyankwanzi in the direction of Kampala. The following central-western districts constitute the Luweero Triangle: [1]
