The incident that happened at around 4am saw the driver of the trailer, registration number UBD 091C/UBD 669H lose control and ram into a building housing the bank branch at Grant Street, along the Iganga-Tororo Highway destroying the waiting area and cash tills among other property.
In a statement released by Beatrice Lugalambi, the Centenary Bank General Manager in charge of Corporate Communications and Marketing, there was temporary disruption of their services.
“The incident did not cause harm to any of our customers, or staff as the bank was closed. All our personnel are safe and accounted for including the security team on duty at the branch at the time,”Lugalambi said.
“Our bank is taking all the necessary steps within the constraints of time and safety to ensure Bugiri branch resumes as soon as possible.”
