Urban grooves star Rockford “Roki” Josphats is being sued by one of his ex-girlfriends who is claiming $462 in maintenance, barely weeks after fellow singer Pauline Gundidza claimed $800 from him on similar grounds. The latest claim hearing was supposed to take place at the Harare Civil Court yesterday, but was struck off the roll as both parties were in default.
Acquamarine Ginnet Wallace is also claiming $250 as her share.
According to her application filed at the Harare Civil Court, Wallace claimed the musician was neglecting her and the child. “I was in a relationship with Rockford and we lived together at a flat in town for sometime and I fell pregnant,” reads part of Wallace’s application. Wallace said when she fell pregnant she went back to her parents and had not dated any other man since.
“While I was pregnant he never provided anything or gave me any support,” said Wallace. She claimed Roki earned approximately $2 000 per month from his music business and was in a position to pay $712 every month.
“From the $712, $180 is for rentals, $20 for telephone (bills), $50 for food, $70 for maid, $30 for bus fare, $80 for medical aid, $170 for creche fees, $50 for clothes and uniforms, $10 for chemist (medicine) and $50 for holidays,” Wallace said.
