Cop drags prison officer to court
A POLICE officer is seeking $150 maintenance from her ex-husband who is a prison officer. The couple has two children. The cop, Gladys Marega said Bulawayo Prison officer Panganayi Nehuma must contribute towards the upkeep of their two children aged six and one year.
“I want Nehuma to help me to raise our children who are aged six and one.
“They need school fees, food, clothes and I also need money to pay rent,” said the police officer.
Nehuma said he could not afford to pay $150 because he earns just $204 after deductions.
“The money that she is demanding is too much, I can afford $50 per month because I’ve loan deductions which leave me with $204. The reason why l took the loan it’s because of her. One day when l arrived from work l found our house empty. She took everything including my clothes,” he said.
Maintenance Court Magistrate Manasa Musiiwa ordered the prison officer to pay $80 monthly for the upkeep of his children. —@cynthiamthembo1.
