Student drags father to court over unpaid fees

UZ

A University of Zimbabwe (UZ) final-year student has dragged his father to the maintenance court after he failed to pay tuition fees for his last semester.

The student, Stanley Rusanga told the court that he was on the verge of deferring his studies over outstanding fees. He said:

I am asking my father to pay the balance from the previous semester and settle this semester’s fees so that I can be able to register for my final semester.

Stanley’s parents, Cleopas Tendai Rusanga, and his mother, Tapiwa Rusanga are divorced.

Cleopas admitted not paying the fees saying he lost his job last year.

His ex-wife also appeared in the same court demanding $250 000 per month from him for maintenance. Said Tapiwa:

He is staying with another wife but we are still legally married. He has not been paying fees for his two children who are in University and I also want $250 000 for food and rentals.

Cleopas told the court that he had remarried and was staying with a new wife whom he claimed also wanted money for upkeep.

Magistrate Ayanda Dhlamini ordered that Cleopas pay US$60 to his estranged wife as maintenance.
