In a Press statement, police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said 28 cases were set to appear in court and cautioned traders against rejecting the volatile currency.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police reiterates that traders and business entities who continue to refuse to accept Zimbabwe currency, bond notes and coins as legal tender in business transactions risk being arrested and taken to court for the law to take its course,” he said.

Nyathi urged members of the public to continue reporting businesses that refuse to accept bond notes which are a legal tender.
Some traders and businesses are not accepting bond coins, $2 and $5 notes.
