Teenagers (17) Drag Each Other To Court For Maintenance
Two teenagers from Mwenezi District in Masvingo Province, both aged 17, recently dragged each other to court for maintenance.
The girl, who cannot be named because of her age, withdrew from Neshuro High School after being impregnated by the boy.
The boy, who also cannot be named for the same reason, is doing Form 3 at the same school.
However, Resident Magistrate Honest Musiiwa dismissed the case on the grounds that there was no law that said an underage boy could pay maintenance.
The mother was later granted an interview with Two Nations and said she wanted the boy to pay maintenance so that she can find someone to look after the child while her daughter returned to school.
She said that they tried to solve the matter with Chief Mawarire but failed.
The girl argued in court that the child should be a responsibility of both as she also needed a chance to go back to school.
Meanwhile, the boy flatly denied siring the child in court.
