Uganda shilling weakens as banks beef up positions

    KAMPALA, Aug 22 (Reuters) - The Uganda shilling        was
weaker on Wednesday as negative sentiment stirred by political
tensions spurred some commercial banks to beef up their hard
currency positions, traders said.
    At 0856 GMT commercial banks quoted the shilling at
3,750/3,760, weaker than Monday's close of 3,740/3,750. Markets
were closed on Tuesday in Uganda as it was a public holiday. 
    On Monday widespread protests, stoked by detention and
alleged beating of lawmakers, rocked Uganda's capital Kampala.
