A woman dragged her boyfriend’s father to court for child support as he impregnated her.

The 21-year-old woman of the Njube, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, filed the child support claim against her former boyfriend’s 56-year-old father after she gave birth to his baby.

This love affair came to light when Cecilia Mwanza, dragged her lover Fink Siziba, to child support court so that a judge should order him to help him support their one-year-old daughter.

Mwanza demanded $120 per month as child support. She claimed that she had been in a relationship with the man’s 29-year-old son before he sweet-talked her into an affair and she agreed based on false promises that he would take care of her as he claimed that he was a businessman.

Siziba denied the allegations, saying that the woman assumed that he was a businessman, but he never told her so.

“I never told her that I have a business. I am a mechanic and perhaps she saw me driving different cars that I was repairing. I am struggling to make ends meet, and I can only give her $30 a month,” Siziba told the court.

Magistrate Vivian Ndlovu criticized Siziba for impregnating the woman, who is young enough to be his daughter.

Siziba ordered the man to pay $50 per month in child support.
