Lusaka Mayor Sued for Failure to Pay Child Support

Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has been dragged to court over failure to meet child maintenance responsibilities.

His former wife Mwika Mwenechanya has asked the Lusaka High Court to compel Sampa to pay K7, 000 monthly child support charge and also pay $13, 000 balance for school fees at the American International School.

Mwenechanya who is an economist at the Bank of Zambia (BoZ) has asked the Lusaka High Court to order Sampa pay the K30, 300 balance on child support and also meet the educational costs for their daughter.

The Lusaka High Court had ordered the Lusaka Mayor to be maintaining his daughter at a monthly fee amounting to K7, 000 but he has neglected to comply with the court order.

Sampa has been dragged to court by his former spouse for failing to meet his obligations that were part of their divorce settlement.

 

Mwenechanya wants Sampa ordered to pay child support in accordance with the affiliation and maintenance of children Act.

    Wow..this is the man who two weeks ago was boosting of helping that he didnt know to the tune of K40000.00 a month and yet he is failing to maintain his own children!!. This guy must grow up. How is he going to help lusaka residents if he cant help his own children? Fire him !!

      Some people claim to be educated yet are not civilised. How do you fire someone over personal issues? In the first place do we even know why he is failing to pay. Could he be bankrupt? All this could only be determined by the courts of law not his boss at work. Come on people!

        Iwe Wezi..in public office there is no prrsonal life. How one conducts himself or herself has great bearing on the job. He is supposed to be solving the miseries of lusaka resudents but how can he do that if he cant solve his own life. Africans especially zambians have this affinity to mediocracy.

    The money the mayoral uses for the development of this city is not from his picket.He needs to lobby that money from elsewhere,eg gvt,Lcc etc.This story is totally private life issue and has nothing to do with his job.Some of these ladies are just destructive for nothing.This amounts she is demanding on child mentainance and school whatever are just too much for a mayor.Besides she is an economist at BOZ who can help a lot in this case.What is she doing.Useless.

    • ROKA

      Mr. Peace,you are 100% correct!!She just wants to destroy him.This is personal, why go to the media and private!!

  25. Jian

    Free #Wifi Ata Ilikwisa

  26. Lawrence

    To be a leader of many you should also have a big heart.but how do you fail to pay for your own blood child and why agreeing at the first place to take his own child to an expensive school if he knew he was unable to pay the fees.you also don’t act to be wiser than others even the Bible says a man who fails to provide for his family is worse than a murderer so think before acting wise

  27. Felistus

    Okay this is embarrassing. Ba Sampa tata just find means of educating the child elo if you can just change the childs school ba cour won’t refuse cause tamukwanishe pa school iyo.
    And imwe ba mayo ku BOZ bala pela edu allowance yaba kwisa nishi elo i believe kuti mwalipila naimwe if you want the best for your child. Some men are not with the idea of a better foundation for kids.

  32. E. E. M

    The lady is a fool, how do you take a child to that expensive school and expect the man to pay? That’s why he divorced you. Tawakwata mano,ulichiwelewele

  33. Brian

    What if he has doubts its his child? Kikikikik these ladies guys hmmmmm

  34. Zambian Tribe

    She wants almost K205,800 from our poor Mayor,this lady should have mercy on this poor soul.That monthly K7,000 will be the unbearable once he is out of that office and school fees for the American International School will be impossible.Transfer the child to the schoo which you can afford instead of embarrassing your child when they talking about outstanding fees.

    Ba Sampa namufilwa just resign on mayoral position. Coming to us Lusaka residents we should think when voting someone who is busy cheating you that he will put WiFi

  40. Sim1

    i can’t c the reason to sue Sampa,what is the purpose of working class woman.u should also support the child not jst buying brazilian hair.

  41. Hazel.moyo

    this man should meet up his duty for his child not ati the wife is working etc thts nonsence! nowonder most of these foolish men who dot ownup to their responsibilities by the end of June ninshi the al province yazula ma sperm yabo ba satana imweeee

  42. jay

    mwandi these private issues need not be discussed publically,they should instead solve their problems between themselves unlike embarrassing each other,we are not interested U are both working class & that’s yo child why leaving responsibility to one.u should support yo child regardless of whether the father is concerned or not..

  43. mr zzzzzz

    My sister, why can’t u just show us that u are educated by solving your issue the two of u. My sister that is bitterness. Are u jealous bcoz he left u? Give him respect and he will too. Humble yourself where u are and understand that u are a woman by doing the right things.
