The 40 bob coin bearing the image of Lucy Kibaki is worse! Now there is a new coin for sh.50. President Uhuru Kenya has unveiled the new 50 bob coin to commemorate Kenya’s half a century of independence.
The coin is in the denomination of 50 shillings.
But the failure by the president to invite public participation on what features should be on the new legal tender has not gone down well with a section of the population.
“This process was suppose to be done either through a call for tenders or a country-wide competition whereby members of the public will be invited to submit their ideas and suggestions on the new design of Kenyaâ€™s legal tender should be. . .the news is shocking” said senior human rights official.
