DENDERA artiste Allan Chimbetu was on Thursday slapped with a one-year jail sentence for defaulting on child maintenance, barely a week after he was arrested for skipping payments for a different child with a different woman.

A Mutare magistrate, however, wholly suspended the sentence on condition that Chimbetu pays monthly installments of $70 to his erstwhile lover, Tsitsi Rambanapasi, for their child without fail.

While the musician agreed to the arrangement, he requested the court to institute a paternity test saying he had doubts that he was indeed the father.

But the prosecutor objected saying the “Sonny” hitmaker was wasting the court’s time.

A few days ago the apparently prolific father was arrested in Gokwe after a stage performance for failing to maintain his 11-year-old daughter Amanda for whom he is required to pay $60 every month.

Chimbetu reportedly spent the whole weekend in jail and was only released after settling his arrears with his estranged wife Mildred Mapuranga, 28.

Although he had agreed to meet his paternal obligations, Chimbetu was said to have halted payments after discovering that Mapuranga had moved in with another man.
