A POLICE officer last week dragged her former husband to the Harare Civil Court applying $200 maintenance for three children.

Winniefield Madyandove wanted $200 for the upkeep of their three children from her former husband Luke Mafusira.

"He is my ex-husband and I need $200 every month to cater for our three children," she said.

Winniefield told the court that her former husband is employed as a police officer.

"We are both police officers but work at different stations.

"I earn $287, pay school fees and rent.

"The amount he is offering is little considering what I earn to cater for the children's welfare and also taking note of the amount he gets per month," said Winniefield.

Mafusira indicated that he could not afford paying $200.

"I took a loan and my salary is now $109.

"I can't give her that amount she is claiming since I have another child and a wife to be taken care of.

"I pay $80 rent and food $40 per month and I will offer $60 for our three children," Said Mafusira.

Presiding Magistrate Gladys Moyo ordered Mafusira to pay $90 per month.
