The purpose of this study was to establish the whether party politics necessarily lead to democratic governance in Uganda in general and Kampala district in particular. This was premised on the argument that whereas party politics have been embraced by many countries across the globe with the fall of communism, and in spite of the fact that it is seen as a panacea for democratization and good governance, most of the countries that have embraced party politics are far from realizing democratic governance. The main objective of the study was to find out how party politics impacts on democratic governance in Kampala district. The research methodology applied was descriptive in nature whereby both qualitative and quantitative techniques were employed. The findings were that majority of the respondents believe that party politics can lead to the promotion of democratic governance if well handled. The study concluded that democratic governance in Uganda may never be achieved unless the rules of the game in the politics of Uganda are respected and observed. The study recommended that there should be separation of powers between different arms of government, equal and inclusive participation of citizens, accountability and transparency and rule of law for democratic governance to take root in Uganda.
