Dont they have the right to owe the foreign currency? Is that a crime? Shit, by metioning the word boarder means more than one country sharing a boundary and that clearilly means that different foreign currencies of different countries found at this place ,was it a Zim . Dollar, USA DOLLAR, ZK, RSA RAND, tell us , why arresting them, you better explain to us so that we can learn from there and avoid to have foreign currencies.
