Panic-striken Murkomen asks for help to dispose old Sh1,000 minutes to deadline

Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen on Monday insinuated that he had failed to beat the deadline on the Sh1,000 note.

Murkomen posted a tweet which seemed to indicate that he had failed to reach the bank before close of business.

"I am just leaving Komarock now. Will I really make it? Must it be exactly 4pm? Someone please call CBK [Central Bank of Kenya] for me," he tweeted.

A number of banks had notified customers that they would be closing at 4 p.m. as the September 30, 2019 deadline for the notes kicked in.

Witty comments

Senator Murkomen's tweet received a number of reactions with many matching up his apparent joke.

@NixonSeward replied: "Give me the money I bank (I) am at CBK now."

Another remarked: "Tuma ingine mpesa nikufikishie (send the money to me through M-Pesa, I'll deposit it for you)."
