Stanbic is planting 72 fruit trees at its tier one branches across the country in honour of the fallen Bank of Uganda Governor Emmanuel Tumusiime-Mutebile who died at 72 years of age.
Anne Juuko, the Chief Executive of Stanbic Bank Uganda planted the first of 72 fruit-trees, a jackfruit, at the lender’s Kyambogo branch, accompanied by the University Deputy Vice Chancellor, Dr. Musoke
Maria, Director Finance, Planning and Administration, National Council for Higher Education, Arthur Babu Muguzi, and Grace Baguma, Director, National Curriculum Development Center.
“We are planting the trees across our branch network around the country. These fruit trees symbolise the governor’s fruitful life; we’ll water and nurture these trees as a way of preserving his legacy,” said Juuko, shortly after planting the first of 72 trees, representing the fallen central banker’s age.
