Uganda’s Central Bank Surprises With Benchmark Rate Cut

Uganda’s central bank surprised with a benchmark interest-rate cut to the lowest level ever, saying economic recovery still requires monetary policy support. It’s the third institution in Africa after Ghana and the Democratic Republic of Congo to have reduced borrowing costs this year. Most have chosen to keep rates unchanged, while a few have increased them.
