The old Kes.1,000 shilling note becomes useless tomorrow.

Today is the last day to exchange your Kes.1,000 shilling notes as they become defective tomorrow. In a circular sent to banks this morning, Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) has reminded retail banks not to accept the old Kes.1,000 notes after close of business today.

Central Bank of Kenya had on May 1st issued a five month notice to Kenyans on the demonetization of the old Kes.1,000 notes in a bid to mop out the illicit cash flow in the country.
