When Tendai told magistrate Adelaide Mbeure that Dungeni”s ex- lover was his twin brother Trust not him, she ordered both men to come to court.
On Monday the the identical twin brothers who are both soldiers, came for the hearing.
“I am shocked to see them together because I thought he lied about being a twin the last time he was in court. My ex-lover told me that his name was Trust. I cannot believe I was deceived,” she said.
Dungeni’s ex-lover produced his national identity card that confirmed that his name is Tonderai and not Trust.
He told the court that he had two other maintenance cases and was paying $300 per month hence he could not afford to offer child support to Dungeni.
“I am paying $200 maintenance to my wife for our child and the $100 deduction in my salary is towards the upkeep of my daughter with an ex-girlfriend. I am surviving on borrowing because I have a lot of debts. I can only offer $50,” he said.
Tonderai said Tendai occasionally helped him with cash.
“My brother helps take care of my parents because after all these deductions I’m left with $5 to take home,” he said.
