Today marks the end of the old generation ksh1000 note. One netizen by the name Negaga posted a very hilarious thread of what can be termed as an ‘obituary’ of Mr. 1K.
This is what he wrote,
We regret to announce the eventual death of a Kenyan One Thousand Shilling Note!
Until his death, Mr 1K was the Biggest Legal Tender Note in the country. He left behind one wife Mrs Five Hundred Shilling Note alias Jirongo of Central Bank of Kenya, Two sons i.e Two and One Hundred Shilling Notes both of Central Bank of Kenya and one daughter Fifty Bob Note also of Central Bank of Kenya.
The late was blessed wih five grand children namely Forty Bob coin, Twenty Bob Coin, Ten Bob Coin, Five Bob Coin and One Bob Coin..
Burial arrangements are in progress at the Central Bank Hall. The late 1K note alias Ngiri, will finally be laid to rest today 30th September 2019 at 2359Hrs at his firm in Nairobi.
Mr 1K, we loved you but politicians love you more.
May you rest in pieces!
The old generation one thousand note becomes valueless today as we usher in the new note.
