K24 news anchor Ahmed Bhalo is counting his loss after he forgot to exchange Ksh 14,000 of his old Ksh 1000 currency before September 30.
He exclaimed, “Nalia Bhalo nalia ( I weep, Bhalo, I weep).”
Adding, “Nimepoteza Ksh 14,000 kwa kusahau nina noti za zamani 1,000. (I have lost Ksh 14,000 that I had posted in my piggy bank and forgot to exchange it to for the new currency.)”
He said, “I used to save money here every month, I pray the governor gives us an extension. I speak on behalf of many Kenyans who may also have forgotten. If not this is now just paper, yaani takataka.”
Here is his video of him having to break the bank earlier than expected.
His followers sympathised with the TV anchor. Read some of their comments
