Some Shops in Kampala city center have been closed today as traders start a three-day sit down strike protesting commercial banks' refusal to lower interest rates. A survey done by the New Vision has shown that shops along Luwum, William, Ben Kiwawuka, Johnson streets and Kampala Road have not opened. Kampala City Traders Association (KACITA) announced a three-day closure of shops until government prevails over commercial banks to lower the interest rates. In Masaka and Mityana shops are also closed. Police in Kampala have deployed heavily in the city center to avert any chaos and keep law and order. My take: Kwa wafanyabiashara wa Tanzania hii haiwezi kutokea tutaendelea kunyonywa tu na mabenki.
