KAMPALA, Uganda|SHIFTMEDIA|Bank of Uganda would suffer deep financial issues if it continues to liquidate assets of Crane Bank that are under receivership, senior lawyers have warned.

The warning by top financial lawyers follows an advert placed by the Central Bank yesterday that hinted on placing  Crane Bank under liquidation.

“Bank of Uganda (BoU) took over management of Crane Bank Ltd (CBL) on October 20, 2016, and subsequently progressed it into receivership on January 24, 2017. In exercise of its powers under section 99 (1) & (2) of the Financial Institutions Act, 2004, BoU has now placed CBL under liquidation and ordered the winding up of its affairs. The Central Bank shall be the liquidator of CBL,” said the Central Bank in a notice signed by Prof. Emmanuel Tumusiime-Mutebile.
