The management of Crane Bank has called on the general public to ignore messages and pictures circulating on social media platforms about the bank. The management said a picture of people lining up to enter Crane Bank is an old picture taken during the opening of Crane Bank, Ntinda branch.
“The picture they are sharing on social media is of Crane Bank Ntinda’s official opening long time ago but it is claiming people are lining up to pick their money from the bank. This is false. Work at Crane is moving on well and the public is urged not to be diverted, the bank is very safe.
Our sources who passed at Ntinda branch say all is well and there is no cause for alarm. Another hoax is that of Katoto saying he is about to lose his life savings. All these are a hoax aiming at tarnishing reputation of the bank. This comes a day after Bank of Uganda (BoU) dismissed the baseless rumours about the bank’s rumoured closer.
