Warning for child maintenance defaulters

The Independent Democrats has launched a campaign aimed at ensuring that fathers who don’t pay maintenance, be held accountable, at the Mitchells Plain Police Station.

ID spokesperson Florence Batyi who launched her campaign today, is said to have already sent around 25 men to jail for failure to pay maintenance.

She says the reason she chose the Mitchells Plain area is because there is that “it’s such a big place and there such a lot of maintenance defaulters.”

Batyi is using court records to get police to arrest men who don’t pay up their maintenance, and the campaign is expected to continue to the Wynberg magistrate’s court on Thursday.

She gave a stern warning to defaulters and said “I want to say to the men out there, enough is enough.”
