East Africa Shilling in 1950

East Africa Shilling in 1950

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store,

For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.

— My Wage, “The Door of Dreams” by JESSIE B. RITTENHOUSE, 1918. Houghton, Mifflin & Co., Boston.

    Double deduction is not our fault. Why take too long to reverse the money deducted twice in the account lyk in my case it happened on 26th Jan upto date no reversal have been made yet I had contacted the centre severally. So how long should I keep waiting?
