The withdrawal of Sh 1000 note from circulation is targeting Deputy President WILLIAM RUTO – BONI KHALWALE says

Wednesday June 5, 2019-Former Kakamega Senator, Dr Boni Khalwale, has sensationally claimed that the Central Bank of Kenya(CBK) directive of withdrawing Sh 1000 note from circulation from October is targeting Deputy President William Ruto.

Last week, CBK governor, Dr Patrick Njoroge announced that the old Sh 1000 note will be obsolete from October 1, 2019.

 But speaking on Tuesday, Khalwale said the move is targeting Ruto for generously supporting the church and the needy.

Khalwale also noted that changing banknotes doesn't fight corruption and the government's habitual secrecy is "tantamount to witchcraft."

"Now we're told if we don't surrender Sh1,000 notes they will be as useless as normal paper. This is tantamount to witchcraft," he said.

The close ally of  Ruto asserted that if the government were genuine about fighting corruption, it should make Sh1,000 notes useless tender immediately.

"We are saying that if the withdrawal of the Sh1,000 notes will fight corruption, then the government should not wait until October 1. We want it to begin right away because we don’t want corruption to take a toll," he said.
