Zim child finds $2 000 cash stash at dump

13 January 2014, 09:47

Harare - Police say they are investigating a $2 000 cash stash found by a child at a bush dump site behind a police check point in southwestern Zimbabwe.

Police spokesperson Charity Charamba said in a statement the officers suspected of hiding the bag of money, believed to be a bribe loot from motorists, face arrest once they are identified.

Villagers say the 10-year-old girl who found the money while foraging, believed it was a gift from the ancestral spirits and her family consulted a spiritual healer. Word spread, alerting the police where the money was. Officers seized back the bag in a raid on the family's homestead.

Road blocks are manned across the nation's highways by police, frequently accused of taking money from motorists without issuing receipts.
