Buyanga excluded on son's birth certificate

Buyanga excluded on son's birth certificate
Published: 12 June 2019 (215 Views)
IN a new twist to the child custody row between Frank Buyanga and his ex-girlfriend Chantelle Muteswa, the business tycoon has filed an urgent chamber application to be included on the minor's birth certificate saying the woman had initially lied that she did not know her child's father.

Buyanga has cited Muteswa and the Registrar of Births and Deaths as respondents in the High Court application.

"The respondent and I were not married and had a child. We used to reside together in South Africa and when we terminated our relationship she took the minor child and started residing in Harare and approached the Registrar General for a birth certificate which was duly issued," Buyanga said through his lawyers Rubaya and Chatambudza.

"Suffice to say that when the respondent applied for the birth certificate she omitted or neglected to indicate to the authorities that I am the father of the minor child. There is no doubt that I am the father and she accepts that."

Buyanga said Muteswa's conduct was inconsistent with sections 19(1), (2) (a) of the Births and Deaths Registration Act as read with section 81 of the Constitution that criminalise falsifying information for purposes of registering birth of a child.

He recently petitioned the same court for joint custody rights and claimed that Muteswa was abusing her sole custody rights to create conflict between the two parents which was not beneficial to their four-year-old son's welfare.
