Ituri Province (Jimbo la Ituri in Swahili) is one of the 21 provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo created in the 2015 repartitioning. Ituri, Bas-Uele, Haut-Uele, and Tshopo provinces are the result of the subdividing of the former Orientale province.[2] Ituri was formed from the Ituri district whose town of Bunia was elevated to capital city of the new province.[3]
