Dear wazuans i want to deposit my cheque of 100k from coop bank into my mother's account in Barclay's bank to finish a building project.

I'm meant to understand that when the cheque matures they won't pay her unless she gives evidence of where the money is coming from and what the money is going to do. Is this true ? And how can I go around it?

Surely, that cannot be true.
Who is she to give the evidence to and how?
Is M-Pesa also subject to the same? If this happens, we will go back to the donkey years of cash only transactions.

100K

That only applies to deposit or withdrawals of over Kshs 1 million

And specifically cash

100k is loose change.

False. No one will ask any question. You can even deposit 999,999.

For cheques they will not ask the source of funds, but cash nowadays they ask for source even for amounts below a million depending on your account activity.

They might ask if your account usually deals with amounts of between Ksh 100-1000.

This largely depends on the bank and age/activity of the account........ sometimes the branch based on fraud activities experienced in the recent past.

It all depends on amounts transacted before.Has she ever deposited cheques in her account of such an amount?If not the bank will be curious to know source of funds.

Part of prudential guidelines from CBK on Anti Money Laundering.

Just give her a fowarding note saying..."Dear mum....please receive this 100k as part of my support towards completion of our house
...

Your sweet and loving son Enyands.

She can show that to the branch manager.

I strongly oppose this letter on following grounds,

1. It is a record showing a brother contributed to mom's house. The other sons may have contributed, maybe more than 100k but no letter so will be disadvantaged.


2. He should sign as, 'one of your sweet and loving son'

That said....Brilliant suggestion.
