Malawian man nabbed for possessing fake South African Rands

A Malawian man identified as 48 year-old Kavwamtima Manda has been arrested by the Malawi Police in Nkhatabay on charges of possessing fake South African currency amounting to about 600 Rands.

Gathered information shows that the suspect was arrested when he was preparing to go back to South Africa where he is believed to have secured a job.

Malawi24 understands that before he left for South Africa, Manda borrowed about MK24,600 from one Kampere Mjamu and has been failing to pay back the debt for close to a year now.

South African Rand“When he came back from South Africa recently, they met with Mjamu who strained him to refund his money. Succumbing to the pressure, he produced R600 which he said was equivalent to what he owed his colleague,” said the source.

His colleague was delighted to have received the money in foreign currency, however when he wanted to change them to Malawi Kwacha, he was told that the money was fake.

He swiftly reported the matter to Nkhatabay police who traced and arrested the suspect, who at that time was set to fly back to South Africa.

Police publicist for the district sergeant Ignatius Esau says the suspect will appear before court to answer charges of ‘possessing fake currency’ in accordance with section 372 of the penal code.

“It’s true we nabbed him at Chintheche trading center following a report on the matter. presently we have seized the fake money,” he said.

The suspect hails from Chiomba village traditional authority Fukamapiri in Nkhatabay district.

  1. I know the man, we are working together at one company here in RSA. But the problem is that: that man is uninlitret while is a local Medical Doctor. Everything we used to help him here even aphone. Because of technology there is many thieves (Tsotsi) who have got Computers here and they knows that, the tradition doctor is not educated but his knows his job. So those people they are used to go to him for a help. When they get charges, they are used to give him those fake currency that’s why Malawi Police courght him there. Ask him nicely and he knows the person who gave him that fake money here at South Africa. That man is not a Robber but Education is a problem.
