The first bank in The Ganda Kingdom

By Henry Lubega

Posted  Sunday, March 1  2015 


Before 1906, there was no banking institution in Uganda until November of the same year when the national Bank of India opened its first branch in Entebbe, and four years later it opened the first bank in Kampala, although it was later taken up to become Grindlys Bank.

The National Bank of India was followed by Standard Bank of South Africa Limited when on September 19, 1912, it opened its first branch in Kampala. And a few years later it opened another branch in Jinja.


Barclays followed in 1927 when it opened two branches in Kampala and Jinja. In 1954 three more banks; Bank of Baroda, Bank of India and The Nedelandsche Handel-Maatschappij M.V (Netherlands Trading Society) opened in Uganda.

According to Saben’s commercial directory and handbook of Uganda, as early as 1949 the banking system had been established in Uganda but did not control much of the financial liquidity that was in circulation across the board in the country.

“Much of the money was controlled in the bazaars and other channels which were predominantly controlled by people of the Asian origin. These people played a key role in the buying of cotton.

However, areas where banks were non-existent, merchants in those areas played the part of the banks. This was through taking drafts in exchange for cash or physical items in exchange for hard cash,” Saben wrote.

By 1950, it was realised that to bring more Africans into the business there was need to provide them with credit. Unfortunately, the commercial banks at the time would not extend credit to Africans because of the nature of their securities.

Under Ordinance number 20 of 1950 the Uganda Credit and Saving Bank was created purposely to extend credit facilities to Africans with the aim of furthering agriculture, commercial building and co-operative society purposes.

On October 2, 1950, the bank was opened and by 1961 it had spread to places like Arua, Fort Portal, Jinja, Soroti, Gulu, Masaka and Mbale, taking only African deposits.

Building Society

Two years later, the first Building Society in Uganda was opened as a subsidiary of a Kenyan owned firm Savings and Loans Society Limited. 

More financial institutions continued to open up in Uganda with Lombard Bank from Kenya, in partnership with Uganda Development Corporation, opening the Lombank Uganda Limited in 1958. It was this bank which first introduced the hire purchase system of shopping in Uganda.

It was not until 1966 that through an act of Parliament that Bank of Uganda was created. Prior to this, issues to do with money were handled by the East African currency board which had its head offices in Kenya.

In daddy’s scientific footsteps: With her 5th degree, Butambala girl lives the American dream:

Written by Joseph W. Kamugisha & Ronnie Mayanja

 Created: 29 May 2012


PhD Holder: Dr Sala Nanyanzi Senkayi(centre) and mother(right) and supervising Professor(left)

   Sala and her Daddy.

It is every parent’s dream to see their children grow up and graduate from university.

But often do you meet a five-degree holder, topped off with a Doctorate degree or PhD?

Well, recently the Ugandan community in Dallas Fort Worth not only embraced one, they also welcomed their community’s first and youngest female PhD holder in the names of Dr Sala Nanyanzi Senkayi. It has been a long time coming for the young lady, the daughter of Dr Abu Senkayi (PhD) and Sunajeh Senkayi, having began her humble journey at Texas A&M University, with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree.

She would later pick up two other B.Sc degrees and a Master of Science degree) from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). And then came her PhD in environmental science from the same University of Texas at Arlington, for which she wrote a dissertation on “Proximity to Airport and Cancer Incidences in Texas”.

Many people will be familiar with the adage that it takes a village to raise a child; that is what many friends and well wishers of the Senkayi family said during Sala’s graduation party. The proud parents could be seen beaming with excitement as speaker after speaker, spoke about their daughter’s achievement.

Emcee Frank Sentamu, added excitement to the evening when he suggested that the two doctors should change their names to Dr Senkayi Senior and Dr Senkayi Junior as a way of separating father and daughter.

The journey that first inspired the young Sala could be traced back to her childhood. According to her father, on the day he got his PhD, Sala ran to the stage, grabbed her Dad’s hat and put it on her own head, as if to suggest that one day she would wear her own. Several years passed but Dr Abu Senkayi did not imagine ever having the pleasure of participating in the hooding process of his only daughter.

The hooding process is normally reserved for the graduate’s major professor, but in one of those rare occasions when a parent of the student is a Doctorate degree holder, the pleasure and opportunity of carrying out this exercise is often passed on to the parent, which in this case was Dr Abu Senkayi an environmental scientist himself.

Sala owes her success to the inspiration and support of her parents, and brother Ali Senkayi, an electrical engineer. She is also quick to mention the collective effort of many other community friends and relatives who encouraged her along her academic journey.

Dr Abu Senkayi, an official Buganda Kingdom representative in North America, also mentioned that Sala had been involved in planning for Buganda cultural activities in Dallas. In 2001, young as she was, Sala played a prominent role during Kabaka Ronald Mutebi’s, visit to Dallas. The same was the case when the Nnabagereka of Buganda, Sylvia Nnaginda, visited in 2005.

The Senkayi family, originally from Kibibi in Butambala, left Uganda in the 1970s and settled in the United States. They visit Uganda regularly and were here only last December, to participate in the Ugandan Diaspora conference the Serena Hotel. Dr Sala is also an active community organizer who spends time going to schools and colleges to talk about Environmental protection.

Besides her commitment to the community, Sala maintains a full time job in the same office block and department with her father, at the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Her EPA mentor proudly noted, during the evening graduation dinner, that Sala is “a very dedicated girl, who takes her job very seriously and devotes a lot of time into everything she does.”

Before Sala joined her father as an EPA employee, the father remembers bringing her to the office on special days when employees are allowed to bring their children to the office. One could say that all this gave the little girl some early inspiration to follow in her dad’s footsteps.

But when asked why she chose environmental science Sala said: “I’m not trying to follow my dad’s footsteps per se, because I like Biology and my dad is a soil scientist. But I also like my dad because he is a cool guy!”

Sala says she enjoys her work environmental protection, and her fellowship in the Ugandan community. “Getting a degree is just part of the story” she says. “Making friends, helping each other, as Ugandan community members to advance each other, is what will help us succeed here in the Diaspora.”

With her five degrees, the single Dr Sala intends to keep her job at EPA, although she could go into academia; and she still cherishes working with children on environment-related programmes.

“I can now say that I’m free at last,” she says. “I have all the time I need to live and enjoy my life.”

        Kattikiro Mayiga (L front row) seated in line.


The Kattikiro has said that he is going to become very strict for all those subjects that want to meet their King.

With a row simmering between Buganda katikkiro and members of the royal family (Abalangira), Charles Peter Mayiga has moved to restrict princes’ access to the Kabaka.


Addressing the Buganda Lukiiko (Parliament) at Bulange on Monday, Mayiga hinted he could enforce cultural norms that regulate the Kabaka’s interaction with princes.

“Our traditions prohibit a prince from getting close to the Kabaka; we had loosened a bit because of cultures copied from monarchies such as England’s,” Mayiga said.

He announced that any prince visiting the Kabaka’s palace and other cultural sites would have to seek the katikkiro’s approval.

Kasubi tombs

Mayiga’s comments came after a September 19 letter written to him by Lukenge Katoogo, the vice chairperson of the governing council of the royal family, denouncing Mayiga’s leadership.

The letter, titled “You are no longer fit to be called katikkiro of Buganda kingdom”, was copied to Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II and clan heads, among others people.

The major source of Mayiga’s problems with the royal family is the reconstruction works on Kasubi tombs, with Lukenge blaming Mayiga for sidelining the royalty.

“You chased the royal family from the tombs because you don’t want our cultural practices; forgetting the tombs are our ancestry, you continued harassing us and also went ahead and named a [reconstruction] committee,” Lukenge wrote.

The letter also accuses Mayiga of treating himself as an equal to the Kabaka, citing the arches and banana trees that decorate the roads during his fundraising tours as well as moving with his own chair, something royalty considers a preserve of the Kabaka.

Mayiga did not directly respond or refer to most of the contents of the three-page letter, but announced that he would not allow the princes to convene any meetings from the tombs.

“None of the structures at Kasubi was designed for meeting purposes,” Mayiga said, further adding that the known ancestral place for the royal family is ekigango (meeting place) on Balintuma road near Nakulabye.


Mayiga also warned kingdom officials against making statements in the media unless sanctioned by him. To further plug holes in the control of information, Mayiga said, three kingdom employees were to be sacked for leaking secrets to the media.

“We have people that are turning themselves into unofficial spokespersons; they have issued media statements [on the progress of the Kasubi tombs reconstruction] without my approval; this must stop,” Mayiga said.

However, the katikkiro admitted that he was disappointed with the slow progress of the reconstruction works. The works are seven months behind the March 16, 2014 deadline he fixed in July last year as he launched the ettoffaali fundraising drive.

He blamed the slow progress on both cultural and technical complexities.




Abalangira baanukudde Katikkiro nate:
