Former Zanu-PF Mashonaland East chairperson Biggie Matiza has approached the High Court seeking an order to compel his son, Tendai Muchando, to undergo paternity tests on the basis that his mother, Rosemary Muchando confessed he was fathered by someone else.
Through his lawyers Jambo Legal Practice, Matiza said he has been looking after Tendai, as his own son since 1992, until 2015, when Rosemary confessed that he was not her son’s father. Matiza is also seeking a restraining order against Tendai. Said Matiza:
Ever since the respondent’s (Tendai) biological mother Rosemary Muchando disclosed to him that I am not his biological father, the respondent has been acting outrageously in an uncontrolled manner and disturbing my peace. It has become critical that the respondent gets compelled to go through the process, as this is the only way to demonstrate to the respondent whether or not I am his biological father. The results of such tests will also be a basis for me to seek a restraining order against him.
