The first part is the routing key (OUTWARD CODE), and the second part is the unique identifier (INWARD CODE). The first part always has a constant letter that defines the country, for example "U" for Uganda, "K" for Kenya, "T" for Tanzania, "B" for Burundi, "R" for Rwanda, "D" for Democratic Republic of Congo, and "S" for South Sudan.

The first part (a Routing Key) or INWARD CODE consists of between three to four characters and defines a principal area in a locality. The first letter of the routing key defines the name of the city or district in Uganda.
The second part (a Unique Identifier) or OUTWARD CODE consists of between three to five characters, is unique to each address, and distinguishes one address from another in a given location. The letter or two letters of the unique identifier define the exact location of the address.
