A Gweru woman, Ottilia Mushipe (34) of 2613 Mkoba Village 7 is on the run after revelations that she claimed maintenance from two different men at the same time, for upkeep of her 13-year-old daughter.

Mushipe reportedly claimed the money from Siyapi Sindiso of Mkoba village 10 and Ezekiel Chifamba a Gokwe based welder.

Mushipe had sired the child with one Tawanda Muchinani

Siyapi, a clerk at CMED in Gweru has been paying $300 a month while Chifamba a Gokwe based Chifamba was paying $50 in maintenance.

The court heard that Chifamba and Sindiso later discovered that they were paying maintenance for the same child and the two approached the police.

Muchinani claimed that the child was actually his and challenged the two to go for paternity tests.

When the DNA tests came back negative, Mushipe was ordered to recompense the pair of US$8 000.

Mushipe, however, failed to show up for court and is now on the run after the court issued a warrant of arrest against her.
