“The suspects came to Amin’s supermarket asking to have their dollars converted into Uganda shillings,” Matte explained.

However, the victim claims to have checked and witnessed that they were genuine and they were in $100 denominations but too late.

He reported the matter to Kabale police station and police have already commenced the investigations to arrest the suspects.

Amin noted that after exchange and after the dual had left as he tried to re-check, it is then that they had given him $1 denomination not the $100 denominations.


Matte appealed to the people to avoid the black market saying that such people are on the increase.

“People are warned from using black markets other than banks and Forex bureaus to exchange their money. Otherwise, they risk this type of theft,” Matte noted.
