A Zimbabwean man decided to convert a $5 note to $50 by adding a zero to it.

A 32-year-old man was arrested when he tried to buy beer using the fake $50 note.

The $5 note had zeros added on all the corners using a green marker, but Godness Owen Godha denied being the one responsible for adding a zero to the note.

“I had a bunch of notes and had not realised that I had fake money,” he said in his defence.

Godha was convicted of possessing a fake note and sentenced him to an effective three months in prison.
