Muzadzi arrested for lack of child support


Former Dynamos goalkeeper and current FC Platinum assistant coach Dom Muzadzi (age 45) received a 70-day prison sentence for defaulting on paying for the maintenance of his youngest child.

This, according to prosecutors, resulted in their cumulative delays to $ 1,050.

Muzadzi appeared before the Magistrate of Harare, Obedience Matare, who condemned him by his own fault.

He has admitted neglecting his son for the past four years.

Prosecutor Linda Gadzikwa begged the court to send Muzadzi to prison saying that child support was an important issue.

The magistrate agreed with the state before slapping the once popular football player with a prison sentence.

"It's a shame that people considered as models choose to make bad choices.

"No one can be forgiven for neglecting their minor children who have no other means of survival," Matare said.

The magistrate ordered Muzadzi to clear the arrears immediately or run the risk of complying with the effective custody sentence.

Muzadzi is believed to have liquidated the arrears shortly after his conviction.

He was brought to court by his wife, Angelina Muzadzi.

Fondly named "Umbro" during its heyday, Muzadzi is among the most famous football players of his time after a successful club career with the giants of Harare football.

He also went to the now defunct lords of Zimbabwe and had a period in the South African League.

The former Dembare goalkeeper was also part of the Young Warriors Squad that he played at All Africa Games in 1995.
