The Central Bank Needs a More Efficient Communication Strategy

So, I was one of the 55,000 depositors affected by the recent collapse of Chase Bank; well it’s not really collapsed, it’s just under receivership because there are people in Kenya allowed to take unsecured loans of KES 7.8 billion – I wonder what it takes to become one of those people.
