Police arrest three people in Embu found in possession of fake new currencies amounting to 100k.

The three were apprehended following a tip-off from Manyatta trading center.

The suspects are in police custody at Manyatta police station waiting to be arraigned in court on Monday.

Godfrey Kere, Embu North Sub-county commander, confirmed the incident cautioning residents to be vigilant.

The suspects are said to take advantage of people who have not yet been able to identify original from fake currencies.

The Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) points out ways to help a person distinguish the new notes.

“To identify a genuine banknote; feel, look and tilt it. If you run your fingers over the note, you will feel the raised print on Kenya and also on the value,” CBK states.

If you hold up the note to the light, a watermark of a lion’s head, the text CBK and the value of the banknote will appear.
