Verdict
Incorrect
The bank will only close three branches of Gulu, Mbarara and Mbale

The claim that Orient Bank is closing in Uganda is false and misinterpreted.

Word has been going on that Orient will be closing indefinitely out of Uganda effective 30th April 2021.

This is however not the case. The bank has come out to clarify that they will only be closing three branches in Mbarara, Gulu and Mbale. This will take effect on 30th April 2021.

Therefore, it’s not true that Orient will close all branches in the country.
