A CITY woman has hauled her former husband to court seeking $300 upward variation.
Ruvimbo Kapata took Elias Matimba to civil court claiming an upward variation from $60 to $350 claiming that her earnings were not enough for the upkeep.
“Your Worship, Matimba does not provide food and clothes for our children.
“Matimba earns around $700.
“We have two children.
“He does not have any other woman.
“He does not pay rentals; he stays at his parents’ premise.
“I do menial jobs and I earn a little per month which is not enough for our upkeep,” said Kapata.
In response, Matimba offered $200.
“Your Worship, I am a potter at the market.
“I earn $30 to $40 per day which add up to $200 per month.
“My income is not enough,” said Matimba.
Presiding magistrate Nyasha Marufu order Matimba to pay $280 per month.
