KENYA LAUNCHES NEW GENERATION CURRENCY


The look on Kenya’s currency is set to change following the unveiling of new bank notes and coins, which will not bear the portraits of a person.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, who presided over the launch of the new currency in Nairobi Tuesday, termed the move as a major milestone in the country’s history and in the fulfilment of the 2010 constitutional requirements.

“I am extremely pleased that today we can achieve yet another milestone, launching the family of new generation coins. They honour the wishes of the people of Kenya in regard to their national currency as expressed in the constitution,” he said.

The upgrade

The 2010 constitution mandated the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) to spearhead the production and roll-out of the new currency.

The constitution prohibits the use of a person’s portrait on currencies, meaning the upgrade is expected to have new features. Notes currently in circulation have the images of first President Jomo Kenyatta and his successor Daniel arap Moi.

The new-look currency should also be fashioned to enable the visually-impaired to use them as the coins start to circulate today.

TANZANIA SEES COFFEE OUTPUT AT SIX-YEAR HIGH AS HARVEST NEAR END


Tanzania expects to harvest the most coffee in six years as better weather and a high crop cycle boosts output in Africa’s fourth-largest producer.

Output for the season that ends next June may climb 51 percent to reach an April forecast of 65,000 tons, Kajiru Kissenge, acting director of coffee development and operations at the Tanzania Coffee Board, said Monday by phone from Moshi, in the north of the country.

The board in April raised its forecast for this season amid improved weather, a high crop cycle and as trees trees planted in recent years add to supply. Harvesting in the north ended last month, Kissenge said. It typically finishes in October in the west and December in the south, according to the board’s website.

The arabica variety accounts for about 60 to 70 percent of Tanzania’s coffee output. The nation follows Ethiopia, Uganda and Ivory Coast as Africa’s top producer of the beans.

EGYPT AIMS TO KICKSTART AFRICAN TRADE AS IT TAKES AFRICAN UNION CHAIR


SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (Reuters) - Egypt is promoting itself as a linchpin for intra-African trade and a model of economic reform as it prepares to chair the African Union in 2019.

The country hosted a high-level business forum on Saturday and Sunday in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh that will be followed by an intra-African trade fair in the coming week in the capital, Cairo.

In a speech to the forum, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi encouraged investors from inside and outside Africa to take advantage of opportunities on the continent as countries including his own pursued economic reform.

As chair of the African Union, “we will seek with sincere effort to build on what has been achieved over the past years and to complete our continent’s development agenda,” Sisi told the forum, which was attended by heads of state from countries including Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Niger and Madagascar.

Egypt has been praised by international lenders for moving swiftly to implement structural reforms agreed with the IMF in late 2016, though austerity measures and inflation have left many Egyptians struggling to get by.


KPMG SOUTH AFRICA APOLOGIZES FOR SCANDALS, SEEKS SECOND CHANCE


KPMG LLP, the auditor that shed clients and staff after scandals in South Africa, apologizes for its “misdeeds” and wants a second chance to reestablish its business in the country, Chairman Wiseman Nkuhlu said.

The firm, one of the so-called big four global auditing companies, confessed to publishing a misleading report on the South African Revenue Service that led to a police probe of a former finance minister, did work for the Gupta family who have been implicated in corruption scandals linked to former president Jacob Zuma, and acted as an auditor for a bank that collapsed due to alleged fraud. Its eight top staff resigned in September 2017, some of the biggest companies in South Africa have replaced it as their auditors and in June it said its workforce had shrunk to 2,200 from 3,400.

“KPMG had made a lot of serious mistakes and lost the trust of the public and clients,” Nkuhlu said in an advertisement placed in South Africa’s Sunday Times newspaper. “We had lost sight of our responsibility to serve the broader public interest.”

EAC IN CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL FOREX TRADING

East African governments have stepped up the war against and speculative foreign currency trading.

The latest effort has seen the region’s central banks and capital markets regulators tighten forex trading regulations to weed out fraudsters from the lucrative business.

It is argued that illegal forex trading stands to trigger inflation in the region and weaken local currencies, which would make imports expensive and further worsen budget deficits for regional economies.

For instance, in Tanzania, the local currency depreciated by 0.3 per cent between September and October this year and 2.2 per cent on average in the past 10 months, according to data compiled by global advisory firm StratLink.

The Tanzanian shilling closed the month of November at 2,291.7 units against the US dollar, down from 2,281.5 units against the greenback at the beginning of the same month.

Bank of Tanzania carried out a six-month investigation into the illegal business, which revealed rampant fraud the forex market business, with several traders involved in money laundering.

As a result, the banking regulator launched a crackdown on this illegal business by suspending the licensing of new forex bureaus, arresting some key suspects and barring suspect commercial banks from the interbank forex markets.

“All applications have been suspended and new applications won’t be accepted pending the introduction of new rules and regulations,” said BoT Governor Florens Luoga.

Tanzania used the military to seal off suspicious forex bureaus as central bank officials raided the outlets.
