    MVUMA- Chirumanzu Zibagwe MP Prosper Machando has offered to pay RTGS$50 to maintain his mistress and his four-year-old child
    Chivhu Magistrate Rufaro Panavanhu dismissed the offer and instead ordered him to pay RTGS$296 being RTGS$100 for the child and RTGS$196 for the mother to pay for rentals, food and other bills.
     Clara Taruberekera had claimed RTGS500 for spousal maintenance and RTGS$300 for the child during a hearing last week.
    Taruberekera told Panavanhu that she was customarily married to Machando and together they have a child but Machando through his attorney from Gunje Legal Practitioners refuted claims that there was a marriage between the two.
    He said that he paid damages and not bride price to the family of his mistress.
    He said he briefly knew Taruberekera and after sleeping with her for some months she told him that she was pregnant. He said that he had wanted to go for paternity tests at the birth of the child but was broke and had not done so until now.
    Taruberekera said she lived with Machando in Mvuma but he stopped coming and paying rentals since April and that forced her to move in with her sister in Chivhu.
    Machando said he could only afford RTGS$50 for child maintenance since he is in debts and is still repaying a loan. He also said that he had a son who is in hospital and is paying bills for him.
