Dr. Louis Kasekende has thrown in the towel after losing hope of President Yoweri Museveni reappointing him as Deputy Governor Bank of Uganda. This comes after officially handing over office on Monday following the expiry of his contract.

In the letter, the outgoing deputy governor said he has made friends at the central bank for the three decades he has worked there and wished his colleagues success. Below is the letter reproduced. 

“It has been a great honour to serve in position of DG for the last 10 years. This is in addition to my first five-year term in the same position that stretched over the period 1999 to 2006.

 I express my profound gratitude to the appointing authority H.E President Museveni for according me the opportunity to serve the bank and to represent the country in various continental and international assignments.

 I also thank the various Ministers of Finance, Governor and the board of Directors of the bank for the support over the many years I have served the Bank.

 Last but not least I would like to thank all for the love and tremendous support during my employment with BoU.

 Excluding the years, I was at World Bank and AFDB, I have spent close to thirty years in total with BoU. Thus many of colleagues have become my friends.

 As I reflect upon my time at the bank. I am deeply grateful for all I have met. Serving our country is a worthwhile experience for all of us. We have jointly achieved a lot and we should be proud of the tremendous progress for our bank and our country.”
