Midzi's child in legal battle for dad's estate

HARARE - Former Zanu PF Harare provincial chairman Amos Midzi’s love child Chido Makazhu, 20, has claimed that she is being deliberately sidelined from her father’s estate.

Midzi was found dead on June 9 in his car at his Mnandi Farm in Beatrice.

In court records, handwritten agreements with Makazhu indicate that Midzi promised to take care of the young woman.

Three agreements were signed which indicated Midzi would provide a house for the girl’s mother and that he would pay for all her needs including paying school fees.

“I agree that the child Chido would use her mother’s maiden name Makazhu and would provide for her every need,” reads an agreement that was signed in 2001.

The girl’s mother argued that if all of Midzi’s property was being claimed to be attached, then Makazhu will be disenfranchised from her father’s estate.

She argues that at least one of Midzi’s five houses should be enough for the child.

Since Midzi’s death, the girl has not gone to school.

She is set to miss her Advanced Level registration deadline of June 23, according to the mother.

The girl, a straight A student, had to be transferred from Westridge School in Belvedere after a bout of rheumatoid arthritis forced her to skip the whole of 2014 academic year.

“Now she is at Speciss College studying Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, hoping to become a doctor or pilot, but the dreams could be shattered if her school and examination fees are not paid,” the girl’s mother said.

“Apart from her fees being in arrears, the landlord at our rented house in Hatfield gave us notice of which two months have already passed. Soon the girl will be homeless.”

This is one of the dangers of having children out of wedlock, at the same time the mother of the girl is not a very clever woman as she was supposed to get some funding from Midzi before he died to start a business just so she can be independent because clearly anything can happen in life....a lesson to all wives, mistresses and women in general

Its so painful seeing vana vamumba being recognised everywhere iwe wekunze being ignored. This woman is dumb. How come you let your daughter use your surname? And all those years (20) you mean to tell me kuti you used all the money ukatadza kuviga kana cent? Some small houses are just too dumb. Have your Association small houses and give each other ideas. Call it SMALL HOUSES ASSOCIATION muite zvinemisoro nekuti kunamata hamudi.

Foolish woman. This arrangement of your daughter using your name would have worked well when Midzi was alive and now dead you must forget about the house or anything from the estate
