A TOMATO trader caused a stir at Kabwe's Green market on Wednesday when she refused to get the rebased KR10 (K10,000) after a customer paid her the new Kwacha for tomatoes and vegetables.
The woman who attracted attention from onlookers said she wanted to be given K10,000 and not the K10 she was given.
She said she was aware of the rebased currency but was convinced that the money the woman had produced to pay for her merchandise was not sufficient, adding that to avoid being duped it was better to be given the old money.
STILL in Kabwe, some residents have started preparing for their school-going children and have started buying books and other school requisites.
Farmers who have just received their "annual pays" from the Food Reserve Agency are flocking to Bata Shoe Company where they are buying shoes while others are trekking to other shops for uniforms and various requirements.
Most schools are scheduled to open for the first term next week on Monday.
