DCI probes $20m fake currency found at Barclays Bank Queensway

NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 19 – The Directorate of Criminal Investigations is probing $20 million (Sh20b) in fake currency found at a safe in Barclays Bank Queensway branch, Nairobi.

DCI boss George Kinoti said the fake currency was deposited in November 2017 with sleuths questioning bank officials how the counterfeit dollars got through the bank’s system.

This discovery comes after investigators found Sh32.6 billion in fake foreign currency and gold in a Ruiru house three weeks ago.
