Orchestra Dendera Kings frontman Sulumani Chimbetu yesterday pleaded with the court to intervene and grant him a peace order against his ex-wife whom he accused of abusing him in an emotionally and highly charged maintenance trial.
Chimbetu (35) was taken to court by Marygold Mutemasango, who accused him of failing to pay $800 for the upkeep of their two minor children. His contention is that he has complied with the court order and accused his ex-wife of bringing malicious charges against him in a bid to humiliate and embarrass him.
Chimbetu’s trial commenced yesterday following the dismissal of his application for referral of the matter to the Constitutional Court. He pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared before magistrate Ms Annia Ndiraya.
BARELY two months after appearing in court over maintenance default, popular Dendera musician Sulumani Chimbetu was yesterday back at the Harare Magistrates’ Court charged with failing to pay $800 maintenance for the upkeep of his two minor children.
Chimbetu (35), who pleaded not guilty to the charge, was released out of custody to June 8 for trial on $50 bail by Harare magistrate Aniah Ndiraya.
The complainant in the matter is Chimbetu’s former wife Marygold Rutendo Mutemasango.Allegations are that on December 19 last year at the Harare Civil Court, Chimbetu was ordered to pay $800 every month as maintenance fees towards the upkeep of his two minor children Simeon and Sulumani Junior.
It is alleged the money was supposed to be paid with effect from December 31 and he was also ordered to deposit the money into Mutemasango’s bank account.
Chimbetu is, however, alleged to have defaulted in paying the maintenance fee for April this year, leading to Mutemasango reporting the matter to the police.
