THE Boma Local court has ordered a 39 year old police officer of Sikanze police camp to pay his former lover K300 per month for child support.
Patson Njovu who was dragged to court by his former lover, Monica Nchima 39, a general worker at Sikanze Hospital. Njovu had not adequately supported their nine-year-old son, NChima told the court.
“I always have to plead with him to support our child and he delays and only brings the money under pressure,
“I have been providing for our child alone. I brought him to court to seek help because the pressure on me is too much” she said.
But Njovu denied neglecting his son.
“How can I fail to support my own child? I have been sponsoring our child since he was born,
“The misunderstandings with the mother of my child began when I decided to get married to another woman,” he said
Senior local courts magistrate Sylva Kabunda ordered Njovu to meet all the needs of the child.
