Mkalama District Council was established in July, 2012. This is one of the newly established councils which are in line with the Government commitment of ensuring that provision of goods and services is brought closer to the beneficiaries, i.e. local people. Mkalama District Council was therefore born after having divided the former Iramba District Council into two independent Councils namely Mkalama and Iramba District Councils.
Mkalama District Council is one among seven councils forming Singida Region namely Singida District Council, Manyoni District Council, Singida Municipal Council, Iramba District Council, Ikungi District Council and Itigi District Council.
