Several commercial banks have announced they will revise down their closure time to allow staff enough time to drive home so as not to be caught by the 7pm curfew.
While some banks have not yet indicated that they will shift from the 3pm closing time, at least two banks have sent messages to their customers saying they will be closing at 2pm and that all their branches remain closed on weekends.
Bank apologized in a text to customers yesterday that they will be closing
their branches at 2pm effective yesterday to manage the government curfew time.
The Kololo-headquartered Orient bank also informed its customers that it would open at 9am and close at 2pm for mostly city-based branches. The biggest challenge for most people working in the city centre has been the traffic jam now that public and private transport has opened in some district. END
