Bank of Tanzania refuted social-media allegations about printing notes valued at 1.5 trillion shillings ($655.9 million) for the government’s use.

“The central bank informs the public that the statement is incorrect and intends to affect the trust of citizens and international stakeholders on Tanzanian financial stability,” the central bank said in an emailed statement.
