Kenyans Blamed for Quick Tear and Wear of the New Currency

The central bank of Kenya has blamed Kenyans for mishandling the new currency thus reducing it's lifespan. CBK governor Patrick Njoroge has praised the new currency over the older one. He says that the new currency which have been around for almost about two years.

“Its no question the new bank notes are technically superior to Kenya’s old notes,” he said. He further said that the lifespan of the new notes is about one year whereas the life span of the old not was about six to nine months.

Kenyans have however complained of the notes wearing and tearing faster than the old currently especially the 50 and 100 notes. Even the 200 note is quite weak. His excuse was mishandled note which leaves people wondering, is he saying Kenyans don't love money? With the pandemic around many Kenyans have shifted to cashless methods. His excuse is poor and I think it's time the government and it's companies starts to accept their mistakes. Blaming the citizens for every mistake they make is childish especially with some fake explanations. The new currency is not as durable as the old one.
