    Teacher neglects disabled child, moves in with boyfriend


    MBERENGWA - A teacher in Gokwe, who hails from Mabika Village under Chief Mapiravana in Mberengwa is being sued for maintenance after she allegedly dumped her 16-year-old disabled child and moved in with a boyfriend.
    Beatrice Moyo was dragged to court by her former husband’s sister who is now looking after the child. Bertina Zijena told the court that she wanted Moyo to help her look after the child since the child cannot even feed on his own.
    She said that the child spends most of his time sleeping and she was forced to look for assistance from Moyo, because her brother, Timothy Zijena is unemployed.
    Moyo shocked the court when she said that she was not going to give assistance to Zijena because she suspected that she wanted to use her money to start a business.
    She also told the court that she no longer has anything to do with the husband or even the child as she was now married to someone else.
    Zijena said Moyo left her child when she went to school in 2010 but she never came back to see her son or husband after completing her studies.
    She said that she was willing to continue looking after the child but she needed support as the child also needs her mother’s support and love.
    “Moyo is the only person who can assist me because she is the one who works, the father of the child is unemployed. They are legally married although she is now staying with her boyfriend because of my brother’s condition,” said Zijena in court.
    The matter was heard by Mberengwa Magistrate, Evia Matura.
