    Maintenance defaulter bolts out as Magistrate garnishes account


    A Zvishavane man who got his salary garnished for not paying maintenance bolted out of court and fled as he appeared baffled and confused by the magistrate's ruling.
    Norman Manyanga who is employed by Mimosa fled the court room in full speed before attempting to kidnap his baby when the ruling was made on Thursday last week.
    Manyanga of Lot 2 suburb in Zvishavane was appearing before magistrate Peter Madiba on charges of defaulting maintenance for his two-year-old baby that he had with Polite Elina Moyo.
    It took a while for members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police, Prison Services and other members of the public to bring him back to court.
    A family member who declined to be named said Manyanga had kept his child with Moyo a secret from his wife and hence a garnish order would expose the truth to her.
    "I think Manyanga is afraid that his wife will know his little secret that he has been hiding," said the relative.
    Asked for a comment after court proceedings Manyanga said he had been bullied by the court.
    "Zvekubatirana izvo ngavandipe mwana wacho ndoona yekuseta (That's an unfair judgment they must give me my child)," he said.
    Manyanga was ordered to pay $80 a month.crime news
