Duach Chuol Kaylech Toang, a South Sudanese national is in trouble for possessing materials for producing counterfeit currency. 

He was picked up while crossing Malaba One Stop Border Point by bus from Kenya to Uganda.  

 

Trouble for Toang started when he went through the scanner, which prompted immigration officials to physically inspect the luggage.  

Ian Rumanyika, the Assistant Commissioner Public and Cooperate Affairs in the Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control, says they found bundles of papers in size of a dollar and some liquid among other things.

He says on the face value they were just papers but upon application of the liquid chemical in Duach’s luggage, the papers transformed into fake dollars leading to his arrest.
