NAIROBI, Kenya Aug 19 – The government is this week set to release a new set of Kenya currency notes that will be in circulation by February 2015.

Secretary to the Cabinet Francis Kimemia said the new currency will depict the Kenyan tourism, economic engagement, Wildlife, Kenya’s history, traditions and cultures.

“We will be flagging out right from the denominations Sh10, 20, 50, 100 and 1000 notes which will be launched possibly this week,” he said.

Kimemia said the notes will be circulated across the country to enable Kenyans go through them.

“Already the notes have been processed through the Central Bank, with input from the stakeholders and the business community,” he said.

The Secretary to the Cabinet noted that this will be a major landmark for the country noting the Constitution requires the country to release the new notes by the end of 2015.

“On Thursday last week, the Cabinet approved the new set of currency that will see the country shifting from the current ones as provided for by the Constitution with effect from February 2015,” he said.
