‘I will not pay maintenance’
A Harare man refused to pay maintenance citing that he will only do so if the minor is staying with his sister.
Shupikai Nyamunokora told the court that he cannot give his mother-in-law Mirriam Mushozhera $425 she was claiming since she took the child from his sister who was taking care of him.
Mushozhera had cited in her maintenance papers that when the mother of the child died in 2015, she had told her to look after the child until he is grown up.
“His mother told me to look after the child and I cannot oppose what she said because she is no more.
“The child had been staying with his sister since she was staying near the school the child was attending, but now that she moved to another place, the child is now in my custody,” she said.
Nyamunokora said he cannot maintain the child because he must continue staying with his sister.
“Why did she take the child from his sister who had been taking care of him.
“I am married to another wife and I am trying very hard to fend for the family.
“I do menial jobs like digging wells, so if she wants money, I can give her $100,” he said.
Presiding magistrate Sheila Nanzombe ordered Nyamunokora to pay $100 with effect from September 30.
