According to Global DNA Zimbabwe, 60-75 percent of men who undergo paternity tests every year get negative results indicating that they are not the fathers. In an interview with the social tabloid, H-Metro, Global DNA principal consultant Tinashe Mugabe said,
We get a range of 60-75 percent of results coming negative every year. These are realistic records of what we encountered…We do approximately 50 to 60 cases per month….The results are national, the sample is representative of the whole nation. We have centres countrywide Harare, Masvingo, Marondera, Bindura and many other places.
Majority of the cases they come as couples but at times you will see the mother walking in or the father and child walking in, for the discrete test.
….It’s important to be sure of the paternity, are you really the father of the child? That is important if the child is yours or you are doubting there are consequences that follow. One will not be attached to the child because you are doubting. You will not commit to the child’s daily needs and may not send them to a good school.
