Kenya is Unable to Overcome the Kenyatta Imaginary


Citizen Digital reported that the “controversy surrounding the new currency has deepened after the National Assembly confirmed that Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) did not follow due process. This is according to a letter dated June 27, 2019 from the Clerk of the National Assembly Michael Sialai that was addressed to activist Okiya Omtata.” Here is the thing. CBK is just a victim of the Kenyatta imaginary that a lot of Kenyans are simply unable and/or unwilling to overcome. If the Constitution clearly states that Kenyan currency should not bear an image of anybody, it then defeats practical reason why, on earth, CBK did not see that the statue at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) clearly sneaks Kenyatta's image to the bank notes. Did CBK run short of iconic images in Kenya to make use of? If the KICC had to be on the notes, aren't there enough angles from which the KICC can be captured without the Kenyatta image?!
