A week ago, a Sh 50 bob note was making rounds on social media with many users poking fun at the currency note. Many Kenyans have in the past rejected this kinds of notes owing rejection of them in shopping malls.
But little did they know that such notes could be exchanged with new ones for free! The Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) through its Twitter timeline advised Kenyans to submit such notes to any of their branches to exchange them with new ones.
The bank regulator further stated that the service of exchanging the notes is not charged.
