Mutukula, sometimes spelled as Mtukula,[1] is a small town in Misenyi District, Kagera Region, in northwestern Tanzania, at the border with Uganda. Formerly, the settlement on the border was known as Kyebisagazi, and Mutukula was a kilometre to the south on the east side of the Masaka-Bukoba Road (B8).


The town is located approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi), by road, northwest of Bukoba, the regional capital.[2]


The 2012 estimated population of Mutukula, Tanzania, was about 5,000.[citation needed] The immediately adjacent town in Uganda is about three times the size.
