A married Anglican pastor fled just before his small house gave birth. Now Father Padiel Mambo (47) has been dragged to court by his 20-year-old girlfriend after he failed to maintain his three-month-old child.
Primrose Keche of Bulawayo said Father Mambo was an irresponsible man. “I want $150 so that I can buy my child clothes, food and sometimes I might need the money to take him to hospital. I don’t do anything for a living, “said Ms Cheke.
When Mr Musiiwa asked if Fr Mambo was comfortable with his girlfriend claim’s he said, “I agree my worship to her application of $150.” Mr Musiiwa ordered Mambo to pay $150 to Ms Cheke’s for the upkeep of their child.
“You are therefore ordered to pay maintenance in the sum of $150 monthly for the upkeep of minor child effective from September 30 until he turns 18 or becomes self-supportive,” said the magistrate.
