A CELLPHONE dealer yesterday offered $20 for the upkeep of his child.

John Jiri made the offer at the Harare Civil Court where his former wife Grace Chimwiro demanded $300 maintenance.

The court also heard that John was in a business of repairing and selling cell phones

“I am claiming $300 maintenance so that I can be able to fend for our child.

“He is not even paying school fees.

“He earns more than $8000 per month.

“I do menial jobs and I realise little income at the end of the month.

“Our child no longer goes to school and I am facing difficulties in keeping up.

“He left our matrimonial home to squander his money,” said Grace.

In response, John disputed claims made by his wife.

“Your worship, I don’t earn such money.

“I have other six other children that are depending on me and I realise $150 per month.

“She chased me out of our matrimonial home and she took my cellphones,” said John.

Presiding officer Nyasha Marufu ordered John to deposit $200 per month as child maintenance.
