The Uganda shilling depreciated during Wednesday’s trading session to close the day at 3665/3675, marginally weaker from the day’s opening of 3660/3670 driven by interbank and corporate demand.

Money Markets were tight during the day trading within 7.00% -10.50% driven by mid-month tax remittances. Money market maturities on Thursday should ease the tightness.
