MPs will this afternoon debate a motion seeking to amend the BoU Act.

World Bank last year demanded that the BoU Act be amended to reduce the powers of the Governor and Deputy Governor.

Some other reforms were also proposed by Parliament’s Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (Cosase).

The Committee faulted Bank of Uganda officials over the closure of seven banks, including Crane Bank which was the largest commercial banks then.
