MASVINGO
– A man who claims to have been looking after another man's child for five years thinking that it was his has filed for $10 000 damages against his wife.
It emerged that his wife Eliar Mushayi, who is a Police officer sired that child with another Police officer named in court as Stanley Gadzani.
The child's birth certificate even bears the name of the boyfriend, Stanley Gazani (Junior) and yet at home the 'father' called the child Nenyasha.
The matter is before Magistrate Victor Mahamadi.
Costaine Tandi who is a school teacher told Masvingo Civil court on Friday that he played a fatherly role to the child for five years and provided everything without knowing that he was not the biological father. He said he was so bitter on discovering that the son was not his to the extent that he wanted to commit suicide.
It emerged that the child was not his when he wanted to get a birth certificate for the son. This was when he discovered that the child already had a birth certificate.
The son was born in 2008 and the matter was discovered in 2013. The couple has two other children after that and Tandi insisted in court that he has been separated from his wife since discovering the truth about 'his' first child.
Mushayi however refuted the story in court and said her husband was aware that the child was not his right from the time that she was pregnant. She said that Tandi even went on to pay bride price knowing fully well that he was not responsible for the pregnancy.
Mushayi therefore said she was not going to pay the $10 000.
"I loved Nenyasha because l thought he was my son, my first born. l was there for him ever since he was born providing and  playing a fatherly role. I discovered it in 2013 that Nenyasha was not my son when we wanted to get him a birth certificate. I am even surprised to see the child's birth certificate here in court for the first time," said the husband.
The magistrate postponed the case to March 31, 2016 for further trial.local news
