A man has insisted that he would not pay maintenance for his minor child because he on four different occasions found his wife sleeping with different men.
He said he was therefore confident that the child was not his.
Patrick Nhloro from Chachacha Business Centre in Shurugwi, Central Zimbabwe, told Shurugwi resident magistrate Sangster Tavengwa that he found his wife shyleen Mabuto sleeping with different men on four occasions.
Nhloro told the court that he had since chased away Mabuto from home. He said after chasing the woman, Mabuto had the temerity to come back with another baby.
“She knows who the father of the child is. The child is not mine. I am only willing to pay for maintenance for one child that I know is mine. The other child is not mine,” said Nhloro.
Mabuto insisted that the child was Nhloro’s.
The Court ordered Nhloro to pay interim maintenance of $30 per child pending DNA tests that will determine the parents of the child.
