A Zvishavane police officer stationed at Dzivaresekwa in Harare is in serious trouble after he appeared before Zvishavane magistrate for defaulting paying maintenance for his child since October 2014.
Tinodaishe Kayeni (28) failed to pay $145 maintenance stipend per month for a child he sired with a Zvishavane woman since October 2014.
Magistrate Story Rushambwa told Kayeni that the court was going to be tough on him because he deliberately defaulted despite him being a law-enforcement agent.
“I’m going to punish you accordingly because you deliberately chose not to maintain your own child” said Rushambwa.
He sentenced him to 12 months in prison before he wholly suspended the sentence on condition that Kayeni paid the outstanding maintenance amount of $2 030 on or before May 15, 2016.
