Former Dynamos goalkeeper and current FC Platinum assistant coach, Gift Muzadzi (45) has been sentenced to 70 days in jail for defaulting on paying maintenance for his minor child.
Muzadzi has arrears of $1 050. He appeared before Harare magistrate Obedience Matare who convicted him on his own guilty plea. He admitted to neglecting his child for the past four years.
Prosecutor Linda Gadzikwa appealed the court to send Muzadzi to jail saying child upkeep was an important issue. The magistrate concurred with the state before she sentenced the once popular footballer. Matare ordered Muzadzi to clear the arrears forthwith or risk serving the effective custodial sentence. Muzadzi is however believed to have cleared the arrears soon after his conviction. He was taken to court by his wife, Angelina Muzadzi.
