Janet Mulimba, 49, of Chawama township sued her daughter’s former lover Paul Munyemani, 35, of Mumbwa for delaying to pay the money three years ago.
Mulimba told senior court magistrates Gaston Kalala and Mubukwanu Matakala that Munyemani had an affair her daughter whom he impregnated in 2011. She said a meeting was later called where he was charged K4,000.
“Since then, he has not paid anything and it has been three years. All I want is for him to pay me the K4,000 he was charged because I know he can afford,” she said.
Munyemani, a driver, told the court that he will start paying the money this month-end.
Passing judgment, the court upheld the claim and ordered Munyemani to pay Mulimba the K4,000 starting with an initial payment of K1,000 October month-end to be followed by K250 monthly instalments.
