A cheating debt-ridden Njube High School teacher allegedly impregnated the family’s maid, his ex–wife has told the Maintenance Court. Sandra Munarwo dragged her ex-husband Vincent Nyathi to court for the upkeep of their two children.
Munarwo, a nurse at Mpilo Central Hospital was demanding $344 for child support.
“He has not been taking care of his children for the past three years.
“I am a nurse and my net salary is $350 a month. He has other children but they are all above 18. I am requesting $344 for the upkeep of my children,” she said.
When Nyathi said he had another minor child, Munarwo said she was aware of that.
“The other minor child he is talking about, he impregnated a maid when we were still together. The child came to stay with him after I had left,” she said.
Nyathi offered $40 for the upkeep of his children aged four and twelve years old.
“She deserted me because she did not want to take care of my mother who is terminally ill. I am taking care of my three sons, two of them are above 18 and the other one is in Grade Six. I also pay rentals where I stay. For the mean time, I am offering $40 for the upkeep of my children. I will review the amount once I finish servicing the loans.”
Bulawayo magistrate Mr Usheunesu Matova ordered Nyathi to pay $60 for the upkeep of his two children.
