76-Year-Old Grandpa Dragged to Maintenance Court

Katsimberis intimidates prosecutors, Deputy Prosecutor General Reza Speaks!

A 76-YEAR-OLD grandpa is at the centre of a maintenance dispute.

Naison Kufakwedu (76) has been dragged to court by his former wife, Tendai Chanda, who claims the $100 000 he is giving her is not enough.

She is demanding $300 000.

Naison opposed Tendai’s claim saying he only had one source of income — his NSSA pension, which he said was also taking care of his other child.

“I am earning $60 000 from NSSA and, if possible, I need a downward variation,” said Naison.

He also told the court that Tendai had sought an arrest warrant against him after he failed to deposit maintenance until one of his older daughters intervened.

Magistrate Sharon Mashavira asked Tendai where the $300 000 would come from if he once failed to pay $100 000.

Tendai said Naison had seven other children and one of his daughters was helping him to pay the maintenance.

The magistrate told Tendai that the court only gives a judgment based on evidence, and dismissed her claim, saying Naison was earning less than what she was demanding.
