A TRUCK driver claimed he had eight other kids in a bid to avoid paying maintenance.
However, his ex-wife dispute that and said he only has two other children.
Munyaradzi Chinodewa was dragged to court by his ex-wife, Anesu Wasarakunze.
She was demanding US$170 in maintenance accusing him of neglecting their kids.
“I was shocked to see the summons because whenever she calls me asking for money, I immediately send it to her.
“I’m a good father, your Worship.
“I have eight kids and I work on a part-time basis and earn US$50 per trip and I only get two trips on a good month,” Munyaradzi said.
However, Anesu said Munyaradzi wasn’t being honest.
“He only has two other kids. I just want him to take care of his kids.
“Their fees are US$25 per term each and he has only paid fees once I have the receipts as evidence,” she said. Magistrate Ayanda Dlamini ordered Munyaradzi to pay US$40 maintenance and fees directly to the school.
