KAMPALA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Uganda's central bank sold dollars in the market on Friday to stem the depreciation of the shilling against the dollar, traders said.
'The market opened as low as 2,665/2,675 (per dollar) and shortly after opening, the central bank came in on the supply side and since then the shilling has come to 2,647/2,657,' David Bagambe, a trader at Diamond Trust Bank, said.
