MUTEBILE’S SIGNATURE OFF UGANDA’S CURRENCY.
By UTN Reporter
Bank of Uganda has finally changed the signature of the late Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile on Uganda's currencies replacing it with that of the deputy governor Michael Atingi-Ego.
Since the demise of the central bank Governor Prof Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile on 23rd January 2022, the position of the governor Bank of Uganda has never been filled to date and Uganda's currency has since been bearing his signature.
In a statement issued by the management of the Bank of Uganda the public has been informed that BoU has issued into circulation banknotes, in the various denominations, that bear the signature of the Deputy Governor Michael Atingi-Ego and the year of print-2022.
However, the statement clarified that this does not in any way affect the legal status of banknotes in circulation that bear the late Governor Mutebile’s signature which are associated with the earlier years of print, noting that these banknotes will continue to be issued in circulation alongside those bearing the signature of the Deputy Governor.
