Sulu sentenced to 20 days in prison for failing to pay maintenance
Dendera musician Sulumani Chimbetu was sentenced to 20 days in prison when he appeared before magistrate Anniah Ndiraya accused of failing to pay $800 for the upkeep of his two kids with his former wife Marygold Mutemasango.
He was, however, given an option to pay $100 fine. His lawyer Cornwell Mutebve argued that Chimbeu was failing to settle his own debts because he does not depend on a salary. Prosecutor Devoted Gwashavanhu Nyagano urged the court to give Chimbetu a custodial sentence or community service arguing that it has become his habit to default paying maintenance.
