A Zaoga pastor based at Chimhanda in Mt Darwin was last week brought to Chitungwiza Civil Court by his girlfriend who was seeking $250 maintenance for the upkeep of their minor child.
Kingston Chakuwamba was arraigned before the civil court by Pauline Kasu of Unit O in Chitungwiza, accusing him of neglecting their minor child.
In her summons, Kasu is demanding $250 for clothes, medical aid, food and groceries, among other items.
“The respondent is employed at World Vision and he is also a pastor at Zaoga Chimhanda,” reads Kasu’s application. He is not providing towards the welfare of his child.”
Magistrate Mr Lazarus Murendo granted $50 as maintenance in favour of Kasu after the parties consented to the figure.
“By consent, the respondent (Chakuwamba) is ordered to pay $50 per month effect from February 29 until the child attains 18 years,” ruled Mr Murendo.
