KAMPALA: The Chief Executive Officer of Stanbic Bank Uganda, Anne Juuko, and city lawyer Apollo Nelson Makubuya are now engaged and set to wed later this year.

“Dear friends. I am pleased to announce that Omumbejja Anne N. Juuko and I were engaged this last Sunday. We plan to get married this year. We thank all of you for your love and support. God bless,” Makubuya announced.
Makubuya lost his wife, Stella Nansikombi Makubuya in 2018.
Juuko began her banking career in 2001. She has worked with Citibank Uganda Limited and Citibank Kenya Limited.

On March 1, 2020, Juuko replaced Patrick Mweheire, as CEO of Stanbic Bank Uganda, becoming the first female Ugandan to serve in this position. Mweheire was appointed Regional Chief Executive at Standard Bank Group, responsible for Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and South Sudan.
