Mr. Mbogo, a 60-year-old man from Siaya County is in distress as he owns worthless wealth.

Hidden in his household is worthless 1000 notes which accumulate to half a million Kenyan shillings. He pleas with CBK to have mercy on him as he was misled about the dates to return the money.


He has tried visiting the Central Bank of Kenya offices in Kisumu twice but his efforts have bore no fruits as the deadline has already passed.


Mr. Mbogo through Nation Media , says that he realized the money was worthless when he tried paying off a bill at a hotel with the notes and the attendants refused to accept his payments.


When asked why he held on to the money he says he misread the information in the newspapers but his family claims that he was wrongly advised by his friends. The money he has is part of his retirement money.
