‘Banki’ or ‘benki’ ? CBK boss ends debate on currency ‘typo’

On Wednesday, Kenyans on Twitter debated about the correct Swahili word for Bank, with some criticising CBK for getting it wrong.

Neighbours Tanzania have the the word “benki” on their notes whereas the Kenyan note uses “banki”.

The CBK  boss added that there will be no extension of the October 1, 2019 deadline for the withdrawal of the old Sh.1,000 banknotes.

Njoroge added that the KCB-Imperial Bank process is at the tail end.

He said they want to complete the process so that depositors can receive the disbursements.
