East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP Simon Mbugua has moved to court to challenge the roll out of the new generation currencies.
In his argument the EALA MP says that the Central Bank of Kenya did not involve the public before the printing and unveiling of the new currency notes.
Until the case is decided Mbugua urges the court to stop implementation of the new currencies.
Simon Mbugua further said that the portrait of the former President Jomo Kenyatta should be removed from the notes as it goes against the constitution.
Similar arguments have been made by Senator James Orengo who said the image of the former President is against the constitution.
Activist Okiya Omtatah has sue the CBK challenging the new currencies unveiled during the Madaraka Day celebrations.
The Government through the CBK has called upon all Kenyans to change their Ksh 1,000 notes before October 1st.
