Inspector General of Police, Stella Libongani, has assured the nation that police will deal severely with any culprit intending to swindle unsuspecting members of the public with the rebased K100 banknotes using old ones.

Ms Libongani said police is well equipped with appropriate knowledge and skills to handle all sorts of financial crimes such as fraud, money laundering, counterfeiting and illegal exchange of currency.

She said the Zambia Police and other stakeholders, such as The Bank of Zambia (BoZ) and Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) have put in place measures that will ensure prevention of any sort of financial crime activities.

She stressed that police have put in place well calculated means of investigating and prosecuting such cases.

Ms Libongani warned any person with intentions to commit such crimes to desist from doing so as they risk facing the wrath of the law.

The Police IG also reminded all members of the public that it is the responsibility of each and every citizen to protect the integrity of the currency as well as that of the nation.

Ms Libongani said this exercise is timely and has been done at a very huge cost, hence requires the cooperation of all individuals.

She urged all members of the public to report to police or any law enforcement agency, any individual or individuals suspected to be involved in illegal cash transactions.

She said the nation is looking forward to a successful and peaceful transition from the existing to the rebased currencies as the police stood ready to deal with all transgressions.



  1. Punishment on any currency fruadstars should be heavy to detour would be offenders.Though for the wrong reasons chiluba made car thieft cases unbailable and car theives reduced to almost zero.

  2. No need to worry & panic. I have personally looked at the new K100.00 NOTE AND IAM SATISFIED THAT THERE ARE ENOUGH SECURITY FEATURES TO EASILY distinguish it from the old K100.00 note

  3. Ba IG, even if you want to natural, look after your lips and a bit of face powder so that you look attractive. Not like that madam. By the way are you Mrs or Miss?

  4. Ba sister nabasuba amafi yambwa pamilomo, basambila TIPO. Sis talk to KOffi before he leaves Zambia nakwata JALIBU I know for sure.

  5. Fyenu ifyo bashetani bonse, are you jealous of her? Muleichindika sana, kuti notwanakashi kumo tulekumbwa their fellow lady (IG Libongani). Just get out of here with your jealous and lesbianism, mwe ndoshi mwe……….

    Iwe weo beta at Ka Gelo, chi Anne and this fool above me, mind your business and leave her alone. Talk about important matters and not you coming here to attack people after you have eaten a lot of food at your home.

    She is God’s creation and she is beautiful just like that. If you think make up or skin bleaching is good, keep that Idea to yourself you inferior chaps. She is proud of herself thats why she doesn’t apply ifyabupuba like you fools. Go to hell all of you who are jealous about her…..It does not even matter even if not married, as long as she is happy.

  6. bad comments will not aelp in anyway…keep it up my IG. good job,dont mind those dirty minded people just keep working hard for the nation.
