Small­house cheats on adul­ter­ous head­mas­ter

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Cyn­thia Dube

AN ADUL­TER­OUS Gwa­temba Pri­mary School head­mas­ter in Fi­l­abusi learnt the hard way when his small­house ended up cheat­ing on him and lied that he was the fa­ther of her child.

This came out when the head­mas­ter, Josphat Nare, who is also a res­i­dent of Nku­lumane sub­urb in Bu­l­awayo was dragged to the main­te­nance court by his wife seek­ing $210 monthly spousal main­te­nance.

Nare’s wife Mrs An­gu­lar Nare (48) filed a main­te­nance ap­pli­ca­tion in which she said the head­mas­ter was ne­glect­ing his fam­ily.

“I am stand­ing on be­half of Nare fam­ily your wor­ship. We are in need of money from my hus­band who aban­doned me and his par­ents. I need the money to buy food and pay house bills,” said Mrs Nare.

Nare told the court that his wife ap­plied for main­te­nance to fix him as he had en­gaged in an ex­tra-mar­i­tal af­fair.

He told the mag­is­trate that his small house lied about the pa­ter­nity of a child born dur­ing their af­fair, but he was pre­pared to pay main­te­nance to his wife to save his mar­riage.

“I have been sup­port­ing my fam­ily through­out. I work in Fi­l­abusi and l had an af­fair with this woman who later came to me say­ing that we had a child to­gether,” he said.

“We fought with that woman and the mat­ter was taken to the main­te­nance court at Fi­l­abusi where I de­nied un­til I ap­plied for pa­ter­nity tests. I paid for the whole pro­ce­dure. The re­sults came this week and they will be read on Oc­to­ber 19 in court, but I was in­formed that Iam not the fa­ther.”

He said pay­ing $210 main­te­nance was noth­ing com­pared to di­vorce.

The head­mas­ter said it was not easy to leave his wife who gave him two grown up chil­dren aged 21 and 28 years.

Mr Musi­iwa or­dered Nare to pay $210 as spousal main­te­nance with ef­fec­tive from Oc­to­ber 30.
