Court upholds K250 child maintenance claim

A 39-YEAR-OLD man of Lusaka’s Jack township has been sued in the Chawama local court for child maintenance by his former lover.
Before senior court magistrate Sarah Nyendwa was Christopher Chanda who was taken to court by his former lover Catherine Chisala, 35, of John Howard for financial assistance towards the upkeep of their seven-year-old son.
Chisala told the court that it has always been a problem to get any financial assistance ever since their son was born as Chanda is in the habit of giving excuses each time he was approached for help.
Passing judgment, the court upheld the claim and ordered Chanda to pay K250 monthly as child maintenance starting February month end.
