A Harare woman hauled her estranged husband to Harare Civil Court for maintenance of their 6 month old baby.
Elizabeth Maguwure claimed $250 per month for the support of their minor child because on her own she cannot take care of the child because she is an albino and she in need of health expenses to keep her health.
“I would like him to help me maintain our child and meet his necessities because at the moment I cannot afford both my needs and the child’s because of my condition. I also want to be maintained to be able to take care of the child,said Maguwure
Godknows Rukara opposed the amount proposed by Maguwure saying he could not afford the amount but could afford $30 because for the mean time he is not employed and is currently doing voluntary work at Nation Anti-Piracy Zimbabwe and only gets $100 if they have an operation.
“I am currently not employed and I am also taking care of my 3 children. I can only afford $30 and I am doing voluntary work at National Anti-Piracy Zimbabwe”, said Rukara.
Presiding Magistrate Sheila Nazombe ordered Rukara to deposit $80 into Maguwure account and take responsible of his child.
