A well-worn Five Thousand Rwandan franc note and a similarly distressed One Thousand Rwandan franc one arrived at the National Bank of Rwanda to be retired.
As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burnt, they struck up a conversation.
The Five Thousand Rwandan franc note reminisced about its travels all over the country.
“I’ve had a pretty good life,” the Five Thousand Rwandan franc note proclaimed. “Why, I’ve been to Kigali , Gisenyi, Kibuye and Butare, the finest places and restaurants in Kigali , Gisenyi, Kibuye and Butare, performances at Amahoro Stadium and Petit Stade, the hottest night clubs all over the country and even a weekend at Serena Hotel and Kinigi and by a whisker missed Shaggy’s show because this fool wanted to bank me first.”
“Wow!” said the One Thousand Rwandan franc. “You’ve really had an exciting life!”
“So tell me,” says the Five Thousand Rwandan franc note, “where have you been throughout your lifetime?”
The One Thousand Rwandan franc replies, “Oh, I’ve been to the Apostolic & Methodist Church, the Redeemed Christian Church, Catholic Church, Zion Temple, the Deeper Life Bible Church, Baptist Church, the Anglican Church, Pentecostal, CCC, the Lutheran Church...”
At this point the Five Thousand Rwandan franc note interrupts, “What’s a church?
Can we help the five thousand rwandan franc notes to also go to church?
