Former Sentech CEO and now State Information Technology Agency (Sita) boss Setumo Mohapi has become embroiled in a child maintenance lawsuit.

Briefly.co.za learned that Mohapi claims that he has already made an offer of R7500 per month which was handled by his lawyers according to the sowetanlive.co.za.
The woman accuses Mohapi of not paying a cent towards the maintenance of the child and of only buying a car seat, a stroller and some toiletries when the child was born.
According to her, he has ignored her emails. Mohapi claims that she is the one dodging and has not answered to emails asking for her account details so he could deposit money.
She supplied him with a spreadsheet which details her staggering experiences which includes rent of R13500, a car instalment of R9300, groceries of R5000, a nanny at R7000, formula and nappies at R2000, medical aid at R1500, toiletries and vitamins at R1000 and electricity at R1200.
Mohapi earns R4-million per year and has denied the allegations against him, he also said he gave the woman a loan of R65 000 which she has failed to pay back and that she has access to an amount of R100 000.
He has only seen the baby once because the mother has banned him from coming to the house.
