PATERNITY tests have confirmed sungura star Alick Macheso is the biological father of two children at the centre of an alimony dispute with ex-wife Fortunate “Tafadzwa” Mapako.

The development could see an upward variation of Macheso’s monthly maintenance payments which were provisionally set at about US$1000 pending the results of the tests.

Macheso later had the sum further reduced to US$750 after providing the courts with proof of the couple’s divorce.

Tafadzwa’s lawyer said DNA tests carried out through the National Blood Transfusion Services of Zimbabwe had confirmed Macheso was the father of the couple’s two minor children.

“Vana ndevake 100 percent. Both are his children. Tafadzwa is happy with the results because she was being accused of things she didn’t do,” said Tafadzwa’s lawyer David Ngwerume.

“At the moment we have to sit down and talk before we can do anything.”

Macheso requested the tests after saying he suspected he was not the father of Maneesha and Alick Junior as the couple’s divorce turned acrimonious.

Tafadzwa had demanded up to US$7,000 per month for the upkeep of the children and her own needs but was granted US$1050 pending the outcome of the tests.

She however challenged the ruling at the High Court.
