Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News/feature - Cyn­thia Dube Court Re­porter

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.
