Uganda plans to borrow over Sh66 billion from international banks to plug a hole in its 2019/2020 budget after domestic revenue collections fell short by 9 per cent, amid delays in implementation of some planned tax-generating measures.

The move could heighten concerns about the East African country’s growing debt pile which the International Monetary Fund has warned would likely surpass 50 per cent of gross domestic product in 2021/2022. Uganda’s financial year starts in July.

The Finance Ministry said in documents posted on parliament’s website that the government planned to borrow the money from a local unit of South Africa’s Standard Bank and regional Trade Development Bank.
