A Harare man had taken his ex-wife to court seeking a downward variation before it was reviewed that he had accrued $4800 in arrears. He had defaulted payment for the last 15 months. His wife reviewed that he had a habit of letting the arrears accrue to a point he would not be able to pay then he would make excuses that the sum was too much for him to pay. The man said that he was not employed for the past months and that is why he had not been able to pay but since he got his job he has been making efforts to clear up his arrears. He says that he can not afford to clear the arrears as he has other expenses that are also piling up. The judge dismissed the application.
