Fomer police officer and now money changer bashed by mob

Fomer police officer and now money changer bashed by mob. A former police officer was yesterday beaten by a mob after giving a pedestrian fake money in a failed illegal forex transaction.

The illegal money changer only identified as Kudakwashe told H-Metro that he has been surviving by trading fake notes. The incident occurred along Sam Nujoma Street.

Kudakwashe’s luck ran out after giving his client believed to be a member of security agencies fake R600. “I am sorry for this and I have been doing this as a means of living,” he added begging for mercy from the mob.

Kudakwashe’s victim convinced a police officer to take him to his office along Nelson Mandela Avenue instead of a police station presumably for further bashing. The victim later returned to the scene.

“Tamusiya uko tazoziva kuti aitombove mupurisa akabudiswa basa,” said the victim refusing to answer further questions. A number of people have been losing their hard earned money through engaging in illegal foreign currency deals. Police have been raiding a number of illegal foreign currency dealers but their effort has been failing to weed them off the street corners.
