A Ghanaian bus conductor, popularly known as 'trotro-mate' has had the surprise of his life after discovering that a GHC 20 note he found was actually a piece of cloth.

The rib-cracking incident was made public in the Facebook group TroTro Diaries by a gentleman called Jnr Lecrea Gonewild, contrary to what many people might think that the mate was not given the money by a passenger.

It is indicated that the young man spotted the 'note' on the floor when the sprinter got to Korle-Bu and hurriedly asked the driver to stop for a moment.

To his surprise, the mate discovered after picking up the currency that it was actually printed on a piece of cloth. The disappointed mate joined the bus with his ‘cloth money’ in hand.

It is rather interesting and dumfounding how anyone would take their time to carefully print a denomination on a piece of cloth.

However, if perhaps, the motive behind it was to just prank someone, then indeed the person was really successful with the ploy.
