Norton MP Temba Mliswa In Maintenance Battle With Lawyer Ex-Wife!

Temba Mliswa, a politician from Norton, and Cynthia Mugwira, his ex-wife and attorney, were in court Wednesday in a matter where the MP is reportedly failing to make support payments.

Mliswa went before Ruth Moyo, the mag  istrate, and pleaded not guilty.

According to Mugwira, Mliswa broke the maintenance order that was given on June 30, 2021, which prompted her to sue the father of her two young children.

The State claims that in December of last year, Mliswa got a bill for $1 216 000 to pay for the education fees of his young children.

On January 19 this year, he paid $2 940 000, leaving the first invoice’s balance due.

In her examination in chief, Mugwira told the court that the money should be paid into the school’s account directly, upon request of the invoices, which are issued in accordance with the currency one intends to use.

She, however, told the court that the issue of ratings don’t apply because the invoices were independent of each other.

Mliswa denied ever failing to pay maintenance or school fees.

He said he didn’t owe the school.

He told the court that if there were any arrears, or default in maintenance, the default was not wilfull.

Mliswa claimed that he was given the school’s United States dollar invoice, which he settled fully, at the prevailing official rate on the date he paid.

Any variances, which Mugwira was claiming, were being computed on the black market, which is unlawful.

He said he had gone to the extent of borrowing in an effort to comply with the maintenance order pending the filing and determination of an application for variation.

Mandirasa Chigumira prosecuted.
