Thieves Blow Up Finance Bank Safe, Run Away With Cash

UNKNOWN criminals this morning broke into Finance Bank in Serenje and walked away with a total sum of K95 million old currency.

Police public relations officer Elizabeth Kanjela said in a statement the criminals entered through the wall fence and then went to the strong room where they blew up the safe containing the money.

“We are therefore appealing to banks and members of the public to be alert because we feel the criminals may want to buy or exchange the old currency with the new notes. We are also appealing to the public who may have information to report to any nearest police station,” Ms Kanjela said.

      it could it could be an ‘inside job’ your children or family members, could be stealing the petrol while you sleep and sale it in containers to make pocket money for themselves. True life story!

    its nothing more than an inside job..the manager just organised thugz to carry out the dirty work..he obviously left the entire building open for them..he must with immediate effect be investigated!!

    Do not rush to conclude that it is an inside job. Even if it is an inside job, do not conclude that the Branch Manager is involved. Normally, the Manager is not a Custodian of cash. Sometimes, there are inherent security weaknesses at the branch; the guards are not armed, old and drunk, the alarm systems may be disabled by power-cut and will not trigger a tamper signal if they are not GSM controlled, the boundary wall may be porous, and the thieves will have information from people other than members of staff, especially there were contractors on site recently. I assure you, if the Manager is involved, the loss is massive and normally one or two computers will be taken as well!

    Before you point your accusing finger at the manager, think of a situation where at one time in your life you were guiltless and someone accused you of having been the one. And it was so hard to convince people that it was not you, you even felt a bit guilty because you could not prove that it was not you! But deep down, you knew that it was not you and you had God on your side. Just trying to tell everyone that it is not always that one is guilty!

    I agree with bloggers that could be an inside job. Thats the problem when one wants to impress their girlfriends. The police must investigate thoroughly and how come the thieves knew where the money was kept? I thought every bank has a strong room or safe.

    If its an inside job then they are silly to take old currency. But changing old notes won’t be a problem, they can just be changing K1million per day in different towns and different banks
