      The love for 50bob in my country Kenya is amazing. So powerful that it gets to traverse the country from border to border, to the hospital corridors, and not forgetting the mighty hand of the traffic cop.

      The police are on the front lines, they tell makangas to use their own routes if they have not given them the 50bob

      Looking at it from the corruption point of view, this note is the amount easily used where cash is exchanged. Small amount but accimulate to billions.

      I wish there would be a way to place a tracker on one note then trace its movement all over Kenya. An impossible feat probably, but we need to track one, just one note.

      Fifty bob is so powerful that even the gateman at your estate will still demand you pay something despite paying a monthly security fee. When you pay, they even open the gate for you and salute for you.

      The power of 50 bob has now moved to 100 bob. They give 100 bob as an escape route just in case they are caught on the wrong side of the law.
