Upper-Six Student In Baby-Mama Drama, Woman Claims $300 Maintenance
An A-level student from Harare was hauled to court by his ex-lover, claiming $300 maintenance for the upkeep of their one-year-old-child.
Tendai Makoni, who is an upper sixth student at Herentals college, appeared before magistrate Gladys Moyo claiming that he could not meet the demands of his estranged lover Mary Chikomo with whom he has a child with.
” I am an A-level student and I don’t earn any money how can I be able to provide $300 every month? I do not have anything to offer, I will start providing after I finish school and I get a Job. This year I need to focus on my A-level and I cannot do piece Jobs,” he said.
Chikomo defended her claim, stating that the respondent came from a well up family and was able to take care of his child whom he was failing to take care of.
” His family is very rich they own supermarkets, Kombis and salons, but are failing to look after their son’s child. He has not paid damages to my family and it angers me. I know he can afford at least something so that I take care of the child because I cannot do all duties alone while he is doing nothing,” she said.
In the court’s judgement, Makoni was ordered to pay $50 upkeep for his child with effect from next month.
