It is only 7 days remaining before the old Ksh.1000 cease to be legal tender in Kenya.
The financial industry Regulator, Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) as well as banks have stepped up efforts to remind Kenyans to exchange the old currency notes with new ones.
This is literally putting your mouth where your money is. Here are some examples of Adverts carried by CBK and different banks.
Someone sent us this picture, which she took after she visited her mother. Our mothers and grandmothers are epic savers. They may have some money around their homes. Please check on them and remind them of the deadline of September 30 for exchanging the older KSh 1000 notes. https://t.co/8PK8OV2vNP
