A small boy stole 2 toy cars from my "playthings" for children. When the others were asked what should be done to him, a 5 yr old replied "Send him to The Hague".

It turns out that it probably was made up. $10M in $100 bills weighs about 100kg.

The original story seems to have disappeared!

Looks like I was wrong - you could make it up - and somebody did ☺

Today's Nation has helpful illustrations showing 10 piles of notes each 124cms high and 15 cms wide to show the size and 50 2kg bags of maize flour to show the weight

The Standard piece contains an explanation that the story came from a reliable source but they now accept it was not accurate, so presumably have deleted the story

The money belongs to me it is from my new friend in Nigeria. My 20 million hasn't arrived in my bank account yet so he must have sent it via Kenya.

It is true but that is Zimbabwe`s money whereby they mentioned currency is equivalent to US $ 35 dollars only.

So,don't be surprised about the figure :-))))
