Married businessman and Bikita West legislator, Dr Munyaradzi Kereke has agreed to pay $2000 monthly for the upkeep of a child he had with a Masvingo university student, state media reported.
The woman, Maudy Machangwa claimed in papers filed at Masvingo Civil Court that she had taken care of the child alone since giving birth in 2011. She confirmed she had been in an adulterous union as Kereke’s secret lover in a relationship that lasted for many years.
Kereke’s integrity has been questioned by women’s rights groups. He was earlier accused of raping an 11 year-old girl at gunpoint at his home in Harare after being asked to take care of her by a relative. Then Attorney-General Johannes Tomana refused to prosecute as Kereke was adviser to former Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono, the alleged lover of Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace Mugabe .
