BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,11TH SEPT 2019-The central bank of Kenya has remind mothers and grandmothers not to be left behind in meeting the deadlines for surrendering old notes for exchange with the new generations ones. CBK governor Patrick Njoroge has warned that come 30th Sept 2019 all old notes will be worthless.
“Our mothers and grandmothers are epic savers. They may have some money around their homes,” he said on Wednesday via Twitter.
“Please check on them and remind them of the deadline of September 30 for exchanging the older Sh 1000 notes.”
The Central Bank of Kenya had last week said there are enough new generation notes in circulation, urging Kenyans to take advantage of the deadline to replace old notes.
About 100 million pieces of the old Sh1,000 note had been returned to the CBK by end of August ahead of September 30 deadline.
All the old sh 1000 notes will cease to be legal tender on October 1.
