Senator Kipchumba Murkomen racing against time
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.
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)."
