Bank Of Zambia (BoZ) ‘Dirty Operations’ Exposed

Tumfweko has exclusively unearthed some ‘dirty operations’ taking place at the Bank of Zambia (BoZ).
The Central Bank has failed to inform the public in the radical changes as to which company prints Zambian genuine money.
Tumfweko understands that BoZ has now engaged a German company to print its money.
Take a good look at your Kwacha note. Is the name of the Company Dela Rue or something else? Look at the old note say a K20,000 and also the new K50, 000 look at the names that have made the note, Is it Dela Rue or what do you see there?
Tumfweko observed the brand new notes were in circulation massively between 15 August, 2011 and 20 September, 2011. The other observation is that the governor’s signature is the same on all notes which confirms that the previous government and governor did the engagement.
Tumfweko again observed that at one time during the campaign period, the banks were offering only K10,000 and K20,000 as highest denominations which BoZ insiders claimed that Rupiah Banda had taken the K50,000 for distributions in the campaigns.
“Its actually dangerous that the MMD government changed the quality of the Paper without informing the Public as it stands now, in Zambia it is dificult for people trading on the markets and elsewhere to identify which is legal tender. The features to look for which includes the Print company has changed but no one has been notified. We wonder if the Banks have been notified as well,” said the source.
“Usually the bank would notify the nation if there were to be any changes to the kwacha note. The difference in the printer is a change to many because it can be seen as a counterfeit note if the old one has a different printer to the current one. Why did they keep it a secret?,” Sources asked Tumfweko.
Tender procedure was not in public and has been questioned.

    Good insight ba Tunfweko – gives a good start for investigations. Nevertheless, before publishing, at least proof read the article using an expert on such issues. You had some errors – e.g. Governors signature will only change when u change governors. Then the G and D co. has been printing our notes even as far back as 2008 (check the 10,000s for 2008), so maybe they were just given more business for doing certain illegal deals. Infact to also highlight something which many may not know – any country that is growing (GDP growth) will definately have seignorage revenue from printing money. But in Zambia we have not seen this despite growing at over 5% for many years now. The entire economy has a total amount of cash in criculation. When soiled notes r brought to the cenral bank, they r replaced with new ones to maintain the amount in circulation. But when the economy grows, then somewhat proprtional to the growth rate should the cash in criculation grow – there are some serious extrapolations done to ascertain the actuals additional cash and its denominations to add to the amount in circulation. The addition is seignorage (INITIAL VALUE) and it should be given to govt. But we have never seen it reflect anywhere not even in the budget. Technocrats will brush it aside as negligible – but this is in billions and someone has been getting it…

      IS THIS TRUE?IF SO, IS IT WITH THE BLESSINGS OF THE MAIN ZAMBIAN GOVERNMENT? OR ARE WE GETTING INTO ANOTHER PHASE OF MISUNDERSTANDING THAT USUALLY HAVE HIGH POLITICAL OVER TONES WHICH ULTIMATELY CULMINATES TO LOSS OF LIFE LIKE IN THE PAST REGIME?

    Sorry for divertising the topic at hand. Are you aware that a number of Filling station in Kitwe has disregarded the Government directive to reduce the fuel at prices affirmed by the Government. To be precise Engine filling station is still selling the fuel at old prices. The fuel attendants even have the guts to ague that they were instructed by their bosses to continue selling at the old price until the current stock is finished. It is now about 5 days these guys have been bleaching the government order. the rest of the stations are selling petrol at K8,155 and some have even gone extra miles by selling at K 8,130 . someone in government or the local authority should pick this and investigate the matter.
