Koboko Municipality is among the Towns that became prominent due to trade booms in the area where it was a commercial centre and development was taking place at a very fast rate, by 1974 it was elevated to Town Council up to 1979 and in this period it was the headquarters of the then North Nile District. By 1979 due to the war that removed President Iddi Amin Government there was a lot of destruction that brought all development activities to halt and the existing development destroyed and the Town Council ceased and it became an abandoned trading centre. Throughout the 1980s Koboko had virtually ceased to exist as an urban Centre as people were majorly in exile until 1986 when people started to return from exile to resettle and development process restarted to took root again on and eventually by 1990 it became a town board.

As economic growth and development become prominent and population increased, the Government on 2nd December 1996 elevated Koboko Town Board to an autonomous Town Council regaining its previous status. The Town Council status led to the improved physical planning of the town and orderly development was witnessed as business boomed due to increased border trade with South Sudan and this increased development led to the quest for new status of Municipality. Through the concerted efforts from various stakeholders, Koboko Town Council with inclusion of parishes and peri-urban villages from surrounding sub-counties of Midia, Dranya and Lobule was in August 2015 elevated to Municipal Council.

This Town is always fairly populated with Sudanese and Congolese due to the high influx of refugees that have self-settled in Koboko Municipal Council to conduct business, an impact that has seen this town attain the growth and development that led to elevation to new status.
