There was drama at the Bulawayo CIvil Court when a man refused to pay maintenance for his child arguing that the child in question had been conceived when he was incarcerated.

Before we talk about anything, I deny paternity. When the child was conceived l was in jail. From February 14, 2004, until January 20, 2005, l was in jail.

He is the father of my son, he is the only one l was having sexual relations with

Tsayisa is to pay all the costs for the tests and Ms Ncube to avail the child for such tests when required in the event Tsayisa fails to conduct the DNA test by end of May 2019, Ms Ncube has to reapply for maintenance again.
