GRANDPA WRANGLES WITH BABY MAMA | A grandpa has taken his young baby mama to court saying he could no longer afford to pay the agreed maintenance fee.
Stephen Murime who is in his 70s took Judith Murekachiro who is in her 20s to Mutare Civil Court seeking for a downward variation of his maintenance to $25. He was paying $45 for the upkeep of their child.
He claimed that due to his advanced age and the harsh economic environment he could no longer afford to raise the $45 that the court had ordered him to pay monthly.
Maintenance was varied downwards to $30 since it was clear that he was failing to pay the $45.
