CBZ bank has revealed that the controversial $42 000 bond coin bucket money was drawn by a gambling house which then used the money to pay a punter who had struck it rich while betting.
The bank further alleges that the image which went viral on social media was that of the punter celebrating his good fortune with his payout. This comes after the RBZ threatened to take action against banks diverting money to the black market.
In a statement issued on social media CBZ said the withdrawal fulfilled regulatory requirements:
